LISAA School of Design

Established in 1986, LISAA is today one of the biggest design schools in France. The school provides students with the possibility to express their design talents in the fields of fashion, interior architecture, design, graphic design, video games or animation.

LISAA is one of the few private further education institutes to be recognized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. The courses taught at LISAA cover all fields in the design profession and are certified by state diplomas (BTS) and qualifications listed on the French Register of Professional Certifications (RNCP) (level II/ Bac+3/4 years of further education)

Our staff are not only teachers but also active professionals. This foundation in the reality of the market and the continuous evolution of practices and trends allows LISAA to reach a success rate that is significantly higher than the national average, particularly for the BTS qualifications.

Teaching at LISAA is founded on constant interaction between students, teachers and professionals, supplemented by workshops, viva exams and work placements. LISAA is one the most valued schools by recruiters, who attend the end of year viva exams to seek future talents. As a result, six months after graduating, 82% of LISAA alumni have found employment in the sector in which they conducted their studies.

LISAA focuses on lessons in the format of workshops—a style of teaching where exchange and discussion are at the centre of learning. Throughout their studies at LISAA, each student benefits from individual tutor support. Directors of Studies and teachers are always available to listen to their students. They conduct one-to-one meetings and personalized assessments to enable each student to progress in the best way and at their own rhythm.
