Admission to the ENA and IRA international courses is selective.
To increase your chances of success, it is essential that you prepare for the entrance examinations. Furthermore, given that you will be studying along side French students and carrying out internships in position of responsibility, you must also supplement your knowledge of France and its institutions and the European Union and its institutions by consulting the bibliography or using the links that you will find below.
Finally, to pass the oral examinations, you will need to demonstrate that you have a perfect knowledge of the history, geography, economics and the political and administrative institutions of your home country and demonstrate a sense of curiosity and interest in the societal issues facing the world today.
