The Erasmus + Programme
The Ecole Camondo was granted the Erasmus + Charter in 2016, which enables our students and our staff to take part in all the various items of the programme (curricular training or traineeships). All participants receive financial support from the European Commission.

International Exchange programmes
In years 2 and 3, our students can spend a whole semester abroad in one of our partner Higher Education Institutions while still being officially registered in our School.
They will simply need to validate the courses they attended abroad (30 ECTS credits).
These stays abroad comply with a precise framework and training programme, which are all authorised by our School, taking into account the courses’ compliance with our double curriculum (both in Interior architecture and Object design) and their significance in our partner HEI’s curriculum.
Conventions have been signed with the Institut Saint-Luc in Brussels, the Glasgow School of Art and the Politecnico di Milano
Applicants are selected on the grounds of
- their former results
- their management of the language spoken in the country selected (for non-French speaking countries)
- their maturity, their dedication in class, their autonomy
- the consistency of their curricular project plus a motivation letter.
