100 % English-language Instruction
ISCOM is one of the most highly regarded communications schools in France and is supported by a dynamic network of current and former students, professors and businesses. ISCOM Paris offers English-language instruction in the communications professions, beginning in the first year of study. Foreign students are warmly welcome to apply. From the fall semester of 2014, students entering ISCOM Paris have been able to pursue their communications studies 100 % in English for all five years.
ISCOM degrees are recognized by the state and augmented by work / study programs at the Master’s level.
A Mix of Fundamentals and Specialization
ISCOM instructors teach the fundamentals of communications, particularly in the first three years, with topics such as culture, economics, law and business forming the bulk of the classes. Each year represents 60 credits (ECTS) of work. Students specialize progressively over the years, gaining deeper knowledge of the various communications specialties and how they work together in a strategic manner . Classes are small, averaging around 25 people, and students are evaluated individually, as well as in teams.
Real-World Challenges in the Classroom
Most of ISCOM’s classes are taught by communications professionals who are currently working in the agencies and companies in the Greater Parisian area. They bring their insights, the problems they are working on and their enthusiasm into our classrooms in order to give students real-world experiences from the first year.
Furthermore, all students are required to secure internships each year, gradually increasing in duration, from three months in the first two years, then one semester in the third year (required to be international in scope), six months in the fourth year, and, in the fifth year, a work-study program (work four days per week, classes one day per week plus one week per month).
A Diverse Student Body
ISCOM Paris has been a pioneer in offering English-language instruction at all levels of its program over the past several years. It has consequently been attracting an ever-more-diverse group of students. They often have dual-nationalities, have lived or studied in other countries, and generally speak three to four languages. Their passion and interest in international communications unites them.
