ISTC is a Communication College that has been training operational
and forward-thinking communication professionals since 1991.
REASONS TO JOIN ISTC
As exchange students, you will discover a very friendly working atmosphere, supported by a dedicated staff that offers personal guidance to students throughout their exchange period.
We offer English courses to our exchange students. Therefore, if you don’t know the French language but wish to study at ISTC, this is possible. And you will also have the opportunity to take a French language class for free!
Our regular students also commit themselves for international students to feel just like at home. The so-called association BDI (Bureau des Internationaux) gathers French students devoted to exchange students. Throughtout the year, they assist them for administrative tasks, they organize social activities (visit of the city at the beginning of each semester, typical regional restaurants…).
