The Preparatory Cycle is an independent year of preparation for university level studies in Applied Arts. Its aim is to bring foreign students up to the required level in French culture and techniques, to ensure a smooth integration into courses offered at French art schools.
During this year of intensive studies, students will have the opportunity to discover the different fields and professions within Applied Arts and Fashion. The Cycle will thus help them to both define their career choice and successfully integrate Applied Arts or Fashion higher education establishments. When the student passed his foundation exam with an average 14/20 marks and fulfills our partner school requirements (especially a B2 level in french on CECR scale), he can skip a year.
