Founded in 1985 by Françoise and Jean-Marie Schmitt, the Institut d’Études Supérieures des Arts (IESA) is a private educational group based in Paris, France. It has been officially recognized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication since 1998.
The programs in all three departments of our international art school combine academic knowledge with practical skills, in the form of internships and projects. Professors, curators, professionals and consultants all participate in this two-pronged pedagogical approach, designed to train students for the professional world.
The transition to working life is facilitated by the internship office and the teaching staff, who provide students with individual guidance throughout the job-finding process. In addition, each student is paired with a mentor who helps with important professional decisions.
The Global Student Satisfaction Awards empower students across the globe to determine the best universities of 2021. Universities with a score above 4.0 (out of 5) in any of the 8 award categories, receive Badges of Excellence. Congratulations!
As IESA does not have a hall of residence, students generally live in various parts of the city, in Independent Rooms or with French families or landlords or in a student residence. The school does however offer assistance by providing information and referring students to services, associations and websites.
I studied at the University of Ilorin, Nigeria. My experience was great and the academic system was excellent. More over, I will like to have an external view of education for my masters outside what I am used to.
My year in IESA went amazing. The course was intense but I loved it. The professors were very helpful in the projects we did. The location of the school was in the heart of Paris, near the beautiful Palais Garnier. FYI, it is not in the same location anymore. I have had plenty of good experiences and knowledge from IESA.
