Training course

Curso de formación (2023)

Those who are selected in the contest enter ISEN as candidates for the diplomatic career. Within this framework, they must complete an intensive two-year training course including compulsory training in two languages and a series of professional practices in dependencies of the Ministry.

Those who accomplish all these obligations enter the Diplomatic Career in the rank of third secretary. The training provided by ISEN involves the transmission of relevant knowledge about Argentine foreign relations and professional training in the specific systems and procedures of diplomatic and consular work as well as the transmission of the ethical principles of those who represent Argentina in the world and defend the interests of its citizen’s compatriots.

The teaching staff of ISEN is selected taking into account the following criteria: 

  • The balance between officials of the Foreign Ministry and high-level academics
  • The diversity of institutions of origin of the academic teachers 
  • The disciplinary, regional, and generational diversity of the teachers involved 
  • Gender equality

Estudiantes de intercambio (2023)Within the framework of cooperation with other diplomatic academies, ISEN maintains a student exchange program with the Brazilian diplomatic academy, the Rio Branco Institute, and the Chilean Andrés Bello diplomatic academy.

As a result of these exchanges, Argentine diplomatic officials travel to Brasilia and Santiago de Chile to take courses from the neighboring academies, while their Brazilian and Chilean counterparts come to Buenos Aires to take the ISEN courses.

Additionally, Argentina extends invitations to other diplomatic academies so that selected graduates of these foreign services can join the courses of their institute.

Currently, the following 5 foreign officials are taking the training course given at ISEN:

  • Sec. Pedro Leonardo Borges de Rezende (Brazil) 
  • Sec. Ciro de Carvalho Becker Leite (Brazil)
  • Sec. Liz Lorena Macuchapi Paz (Bolivia)
  • Sec. Javiera Beatriz Anabalón González (Chile)
  • Att. Louis Jehu Saint Sauveur (Haiti)


The training course is organized into four types of subjects, which involve different modalities of study and evaluation:

  • Seminars: subjects taught by permanent teaching teams, which involve reading the bibliography and following presentations, and which are approved by passing one or more exams.
  • Workshops: subjects in charge of officials, professionals and technical specialists in practical topics, which involve the development of exercises throughout the course, and which are accredited by approving the tasks developed during the course.
  • Discussions: subjects in charge of various officials, professionals, specialists and referents, which involve monitoring the exhibitions and exchanges, and which are accredited through attendance.
  • Magisterial conferences: presentations by various officials, professionals and specialists, which involve following what is exposed and exchanged, and which are accredited through attendance.
