Admissions

There are 3 ways to join the ECPM: competitive exams, continuous assessment, and by application and interview. Depending on your profile, you may be able to join the second year instead of the first.

To join the ECPM you will need to have a good level of English. As your second modern language you will have the choice between German or Spanish: it is possible to begin learning German at the ECPM, but Spanish is reserved for those who have already reached an intermediate level. Non-native speakers of French take French as their second modern language.
