Student services

International students are welcomed upon arrival by an international coordinator. LISAA has put in place a mentor system so that a LISAA student accompanies each international student during their stay in France. An orientation week is organized, starting with a welcome evening with the main teachers and the students of the year. International exchange students are also encouraged to actively participate in intercultural seminars and to organize events on their own initiative if they so wish.

Housing services

LISAA offers an accomodation solution: alone or in a flat share. There are several Parisian institutions that can help international students in Paris. The Union nationale des maisons d’étudiants gathers every student halls of residence in the parisian area. Furthermore, LISAA has a partnership with estate agents Les Estudines who offer studios for rent as well as several services for students.

Medical services

International students can find all necessary information in relation to their medical insurance on the French administration website, Service-Public, and the two student health insurance organisations, LMDE and SMEREP.

Truth about studying animation
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I had originally applied for the animation program and studied that for a year and in my second year i have transferred to graphic design. The general course was very time consuming and due to personal and external aspects i wasn't able to cope with the amount of work.
