International section

The classe préparatoire de l’École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon has opened an “International Section” in September 2017 (15 students maximum).

For the last ten years the classe préparatoire de l’ENSBA Lyon has welcomed a number of foreign students.

Having benefited from the rich nature of this experience, the school wishes to increase the proportion of foreign students in our establishment that prepares students for entry into public higher art schools in France and Europe.

The International section of the preparatory class allows foreign students to participate in FLE (French as a Foreign Language) classes, thanks to a partnership with the Université Lyon 2. The timetable for the section has been organized (4 hours a week on average) so that students can participate in classes and workshops in written and spoken French expression in the university.

It is possible for applicants who do not live in metropolitan France and who can not travel to Lyon, to participate in the entrance exams of the classe préparatoire in their country of residence.
