Student life

Life at our Campuses

Learning, living, having meals and spending free time together all make up the unique communal experience of the College. They are at the heart of what is known as the ‘College spirit’ or ‘l'esprit du Collège’. This spirit is defined by solidarity, respect, openness, teamwork and taking care of one another.

In such an inclusive environment students are empowered not only to excel academically, but also to be creative and develop their soft and interpersonal skills by organising and taking part in numerous extracurricular events and leisure activities. The campus becomes their home for ten months and they are invited to make the most of this experience.
