I really like my school, how diverse and international it is... most, if not all of our classes are very interesting and very useful in the future

Enrica rated 4 out of 5 stars

The school is very demanding but very innovative in its way and with a wide variety of courses to choose. People are very friendly if you try to speak french and to participate in activities. Anyway when I was there (2016) the school's international association was not that active. I would therefore recommend it as a nice way to know a new particular culture and live great...
