Welcoming, administration and accommodation

Welcoming international students is part of ISCID-CO's global internationalization policy, as more than 20 nationalities are represented within the school. Students are welcomed on an academic exchange or on a full-time course schedule where they follow all the courses. French and international students are encouraged to collaborate on common study projects in order to prepare them to work in multicultural teams.

As soon as they arrive, students are taken care of to facilitate their integration and resolve any administrative issues.
