The International Foundation in Applied Arts consists of a year, a semester or a summer session dedicated to acquiring the linguistic, methodological, human and artistic bases necessary for the continuation of studies in one of the schools within the LISAA group.

PREPARING FOR STUDIES IN FRANCE

The foundation programme for studies in applied arts enables foreign students to study in France while ensuring, by way of passing their exams, that they are able to continue their education in the field of their choice at LISAA.

As such, they are able to concentrate on learning the language and acquiring specific skills to pursue their studies without worrying about finding the right school.

At the end of the foundation, a language test, ongoing assessment and an interview with the admissions officer validate the student’s continuation onto various LISAA training programmes:

ONE-TO-ONE GUIDANCE

Every month, for an hour, each student meets with their educational advisor. Together, they take stock of the skills and knowledge acquired and the ground left to be covered.

This guidance requires a great potential for listening to identify development opportunities and challenges for each student. It is also an opportunity to open up their cultural and personal horizons.

A PARTNERSHIP WITH QUANTUM PATHWAY ACADEMY

This foundation programme is operated in partnership with Quantum Pathway Academy, a specialist in academic mobility and preparation for studies in France for international students, in partnership with Etoile Institut de Langue.

This French as a Foreign Language (FLE) school has obtained the FLE label with the maximum number of stars in all areas (Training, Teachers, Reception, Premises and Management). Language, methodology and general knowledge classes take place on the Etoile campus and design classes take place in LISAA schools.

Entry Requirements & Application

This programme is for international students at high school graduate level. Admission is subject to an oral interview, in French or English, and a portfolio review. The interview is an opportunity to discuss the course and the candidate’s ambitions. The aim is to assess their motivation and whether their profile is compatible with the specificities of the applied arts professions.

The student must provide evidence of B1 level in French to study for two semesters and a B1+ level to study for one semester.

At the end of the admission process, the student will receive an admission letter to the foundation programme and a conditional admission letter to one of the LISAA schools.

To join a LISAA programme, students must provide proof of a B2 level in French, pass their speciality exams during the foundation programme and retake an assessment interview with the programme leader.
