Préparatory class for schools of architecture (1 year)
Foundation year in Architecture & Design
A key moment for future course choice, the foundation year enables students to best prepare for their subsequent studies through discovering the reality of design professions, acquiring the fundamentals through the practice of representation techniques and preparing for national architecture schools.
ASSERTING ONESELF, STRUCTURING AND EXPERIMENTING
This course also enables students to assert themselves by stimulating their creative senses, structuring their reflection by developing a process for applied projects, experimenting with the whole range of techniques and, in particular, the FabLab and new digital technology. Although it is specialised, this first year broaches a large range of techniques and applications of different fields in design.
PREPARING FOR COMPETITIVE EXAMINATIONS OR CONTINUING ON TO HIGHER EDUCATION
Students on the architecture & design foundation course prepare to continue their studies on a degree course, a level 7 Interior Architecture/Designer qualification registered on the French Register of Professional Certifications (RNCP), or to take the competitive exam for the French national architecture schools.
