LISAA School of Design is a Grande Ecole on a human scale. Founded in 1986 by Michel Glize, today LISAA is a reference in the world of applied arts education.
LISAA - School of Design - trains designers and managers in the fields of animation, video games, interior architecture, design, graphic design and fashion.
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.
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.
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.
Students have elected student unions in each city in which LISAA’s schools are situated. They regularly organise student evenings and outings in order to mix students from different years and courses together. Make sure you don’t miss out on meeting them – they can also give you good advice to help you settle in.
LISAA is at the top of rankings, among the most valued schools by professional.
