Optional Orientation in Cannes
To ensure students obtain the maximum benefit from their stay in France, AIFS arranges a 2-week language and cultural orientation in Cannes that includes language classes at all levels of proficiency. Recommended for 2 credits.
Collège International de Cannes
Cannes is a sunny Mediterranean resort with a mild climate. Classes are taught by the faculty of the Collège, which issues transcripts for the orientation program. The Collège is a private institution of higher learning founded in 1931 and is certified by the National Ministry of Education. Situated about a mile from the Old Port and elegant boutiques on the world famous Boulevard de la Croisette, the Collège is set in spacious and attractive grounds. Students generally walk or take a bus to the city center. Facilities at the Collège include a theater, small library, snack bar, T.V. room and volleyball court.
