International Diploma

New  International Diploma - Nantes Saint-Nazaire school of Art (2 years-Bachelor level)

The international diploma of the Nantes Saint-Nazaire School of Art is a school diploma designed for students wishing to enroll in a two-year art course (BA level – Bac +3). The course is given entirely in English.


This program is accessible to French and international students who have at least two years of art studies to their credit. During these two years, students will deal with all the media associated with imagery (photography, video, new media), installation (sculpture, modelling, casting, ceramics), painting, performance and printing (lithography, silkscreen, publishing).


At the end of this course, students will present their visual work to a jury made up of international artists, curators and critics of the contemporary art world who will adjudge and ratify their diploma. The teaching team is made up of international artists whose activities are part and parcel of contemporary art, and theoreticians with a multicultural approach.
