The Catholic Institute of Higher Studies (ICES)
is a small private university located in the Vendée region of western France,
just 20 minutes from the Atlantic coast that proposes eight areas of study.
• Political Sciences/International Relations
The school's mission is to create a spirit
of cooperation between teaching staff and students in the acquisition of knowledge
and to establish a personalised partnership with each individual student in
order to help realise his or her professional aim. Our students follow classes, conferences and symposiums given by nationally and internationally renowned professors from France and abroad.
We have about 1000 students from all over France mostly, as well as international students from around the world. If you are considering an experience studying abroad, and France or Europe is a region whose culture and history interest you, then we would like you to consider ICES and the next pages are going to try to explain why that would be such a good idea for you, for your personal growth, and for your professional future.
