From the top of Montmartre to the winding Canal Saint Martin, students of all levels are guided by a professional photographer as they transform the city into their private studio. They hone their skills on assignments that cover art, photography, essay, landscape, photojournalism, portraiture, and learn to develop their own photos in the school’s darkroom. Students build up a portfolio and their best work is displayed at the final exhibition. They need a 35mm reflex camera. Film is supplied.
Oxbridge in Paris takes place in the Lycée Notre-Dame de Sion, a top private school in the 6th arrondissement, adjacent to the Luxembourg Gardens.
In Paris, students stay in a centrally located boarding school and are housed in either single or double dorm-style rooms. They have access to shared facilities.
Students on the Oxbridge in Paris program choose one Major course and one Minor course to study for the month. They have the option of studying in English or French.
Every class is designed to use Paris as a teaching tool. When students are not in class, they have access to a full range of optional activities designed to help them discover Paris and immerse themselves in French life.
