All year round, the campus offers French tuitions, from beginners to refinement level. Classes are every morning from Monday to Friday. The French staff is made of 20 skilled and qualified University graduated teachers.
There, French speakers can learn English or improve their level thanks to weekly English classes during two hours, 3 times a week. A group is a minimum of 4 learners. Distance courses are given if the number of participants is reduced.
Our Academicians are living a full immersion in French culture and its way of life!
The on-site nurse administers routine medical treatment for accidents or minor illnesses. When a prescription is needed, at the student's request, the nurse calls a doctor who works regularly with the campus. The doctor's visit is at the student's expense. A complementary insurance, April, is proposed for a price of 41 € per month. It covers 100% hospital and surgery expenses.
On arrival, the student is welcomed at Nice International Airport and driven to Cannes by our local coordinator or manager. All transports that are made necessary (airport transfers, trainings, friendly games, Christmas holidays) are organised and covered by the academy.
Spend a complete year abroad and play football is a lifetime experience!
