Training programmes

The international Fine Art is unique in France: it is led by the Nantes Saint-Nazaire school of art in partnership with the higher education Schools of Art and Culture in Nantes and in French speaking Europe. It offers a year’s tuition in French language, art and culture and prepares students for further studies in a French-speaking higher- education School of art or design. It is aimed at students who have finished High School (International Propaedeutic Year and Double Degree Art+Tech) and for those on a Bachelors' level (International Equivalence Program).

The tuition is based on a programme of intensive French lessons and a introduction programme of Western Art history and culture. Theory is reinforced by a study journey in Europe, including visits to leading museums and renowned cities. It also offers students appropriate support in the development of  personal projects within their area of expertise (art or design).
