Institut national du patrimoine: Call for applications for international training
The Institut national du patrimoine welcomes international professionals and students in cultural heritage.
The Institut national du patrimoine is an institute of higher education under the auspices of the French Ministry of Culture.
The mission of the Institute is to recruit candidates through competitive entrance examinations and provide initial training to heritage curators for State civil service, local government civil service authorities and City of Paris. Another mission of the institute is to select candidates again through a competitive entry examination and train conservators-restorers authorized to work on public collections. Training for these two closely related and complementary professions within the same establishment is unique in Europe.
The department of curators offers to international students to complete the full heritage curator initial training programme, which runs for 18 months (January to June of the following year). On completion of this training, and based on results obtained, the Inp awards an international degree in heritage curator studies.
