Small cohort size and student-centered environment

Our small class size allows students to get to know each other better and get more one-on-one attention from their teacher. Students have direct access to lecturers if they wish to discuss their studies or get help.

Our students are supported by our administrative team since their arrival in Nice, to help them settle into their new environment and find their way around. The well-being of our students is one of our top priorities!

Innovative course structure

The structure of our program is fundamentally different compared to that of traditional French degree programs. Our program consists mainly of thematic modules, each taught over a period of a few weeks, where students work intensively on one risk topic (e.g. floods, forest fires, earthquakes) in order to deepen their knowledge and understanding of that topic.

This module system is very much appreciated by our students who feel more focused and motivated throughout the year.

Nice is a great location!

With both sea and mountains at your doorstep, 300 days of sunshine per year and very mild temperatures during winter, Nice is a wonderful place to be! It is not uncommon to have lunch in the sun wearing a T-shirt in February or to be able to go to the beach in the morning and walk in the mountains in the afternoon.

Nice is a very well served city in terms of public transport and Nice Airport, which serves more than 100 destinations worldwide, is just a few minutes from the city center and is accessible by tram. The port of Nice provides regular connections to Corsica and you can reach Italy by train in less than 1 hour.
