La Coursive

La Coursive International Preparatory Course

La Coursive, international preparatory class for the entrance exams to French art and design schools.

The Saint-Etienne Higher School of Art and Design (ESADSE) and the Centre International de Langue et de Civilisation de l’Université Jean Monnet (CILEC), are recruiting for the 7th promotion of La Coursive, an international preparatory class for the entrance exams to French art and design schools.

This training course co-organised by our two institutions is aimed at international students who wish to pursue their higher education in art or design in France. It is a course that mixes the learning of the French language and artistic practice. The Programme is organised in Saint-Etienne, the only UNESCO Creative City of Design
in France.

Since its launch in 2014, the Programme announces a 100% success rate in the entrance exams for its graduates, with more than 100 foreign students who have entered an art or design School or a University in France or Europe, or have been directly hired as artist or designer.
