IFP Exchange Programme

Since 1996, CEPMLP has enjoyed a highly successful collaborative relationship with the Institute Français du Pétrole (IFP) School in France.

Each year, a limited number of MSc students can participate in a one-semester exchange programme with the ‘Petroleum Economics and Management’ (PEM) unit at the IFP School, situated near Paris.

The quantitative nature of the management courses offered at PEM complements the taught MSc programme and this Exchange Programme offers CEPMLP students the opportunity of studying at a prestigious European institution located in one of the world’s most famous capital cities.

In order to be eligible for consideration for the IFP Exchange, candidates must already have enrolled for the MSc in Energy Studies Programme at CEPMLP.

Interested candidates would be required, in the first instance, to submit their CVs to Alison Anderson. The timing of the exchange to Paris is normally from April-July each year, therefore both September and January entrants may apply. Candidates must appreciate that all travel, accommodation and related costs associated with the Exchange must be borne personally.  The MSc Director, is responsible for selecting the successful candidate(s).

Once selected, Alison Anderson will act as Liaison Officer between IFP and the student regarding administrative matters.
