“After completing a Bac L, I decided to do a Foundation year in Applied Arts at the École de Condé to learn the basics of drawing and to discover the different specialisations that exist in applied arts.

I am currently in my second year and intend to continue on to do a Master’s in Global Design. To be continued…”

This has been an extremely varied year during which I have met some passionate professors, especially in my Artistic Expression and Fashion Design modules, the Bachelor course I then decided to do the year after. The advice my professors gave me was particularly useful in my choice of orientation during my Foundation year and then during my Bachelor course.”
