Appel à candidature au programme Hérodote

Call for applications to the Herodote programme

Presentation of the Hérodote programme

Created in 2017 at the Beaux-Arts de Paris, Hérodote enables non-French-speaking artists in exile to reconnect with the world of art and higher education.

The programme is aimed at young artists who have already begun art studies in their country of origin or who have an active artistic practice.

The aim of Hérodote is to help students acquire a command of the French language and make it easier for them to enter higher education in art or culture. The programme offers one year of :

  • Intensive French language training (FLE), art history courses (in English),
  • Access to certain theory courses and practical art courses at NABA (amateur courses offered by the School),
  • Workshops and one-off meetings to help you think about your study or career plans.

Hérodote awards a school diploma but is not part of the curriculum and does not guarantee entry to the Beaux-Arts de Paris programme. It does not give access to the workshops.
