An education in images cannot be limited to just one country or culture.

Partnerships with art and photography schools all over the world and international exchanges are part of the richness of the school’s life and represent a real opportunity for its students.

The ENSP offers a range of international training opportunities. It strongly encourages the mobility of students and teachers as well as the development of artistic and educational projects within the framework of its privileged relations with international partners.

In addition, the ENSP regularly welcomes speakers and foreign students as part of its Masters, Formation continue and Doctoral programmes, helping to enrich its educational provision and intercultural exchanges within the school.

The ENSP participates in the PAUSE program, which supports scientists and artists in exile by facilitating their reception in higher education and research institutions or cultural institutions.
In 2022, in collaboration with the Esba of Nîmes, the ENSP hosts the Afghan photographer Morteza Herati. He benefits from artistic guidance with Gilles Saussier and participates in different activities such as the mentorship programme.

Going abroad

Students enrolled in the second year at the ENSP have the possibility of international mobility in the form of either an academic stay in a partner school or a professional internship abroad. Mobility is for one semester and carries 30 credits.

It can take place in the first or second semester of the academic year. A call for applications is sent to the eligible students in the year preceding their mobility.

The international mobility of students is supported by the Erasmus + programme of the European Union, the regional aid programme for student mobility in the Southern region, the AMI Programme from the Ministry of Culture and by the Franco-German Youth Office.

Coming to the ENSP from abroad

Foreign students enrolled in a partner institution can apply for a study stay at the ENSP for one semester.

Exchange students are integrated in the second year and follow a course programme equivalent to 30 credits.

Foreign students must be nominated by their home schools and submit their applications to the ENSP before May 15, for mobility during the first semester, and befor October 15, for mobility during the second semester.


Within the European Union, these exchanges are carried out with the support of the Erasmus+ programme. The ENSP has obtained the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) applicable until 2021.

ENSP’s participation in this programme is part of its strategy of European cooperation through student and staff mobility, as described in the Erasmus Strategy Statement, which can be downloaded.
