The Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (Iheap), currently based in Paris, on the occasion of its forthcoming launch in New York City in Fall 2015 is calling. As noted, the program delivers a French Post-Diploma. 

Iheap delivers a French Post-Diploma, which is research-based and usually given after a Masters or in parallel with a PhD. Complimentary with other degrees, it is possible to be enrolled in another course of study while attending Iheap. Eligible candidates are not, however, required to hold a prior degree.
