École de Condé offers specialized programs in all the fields of design (graphic, interior, fashion, and product), graphic arts (illustration, animation, and photography) and cultural heritage (restoration, art market) at bachelor level as well as master level. The school delivers either State diplomas (bachelors) or diplomas accredited by the Commission Nationale de la Certification Professionnelle, the governmental body in charge of diplomas recognition, up to the level I (highest accreditation level). In addition to National accreditations, École de Condé is part of the ERASMUS+ program and receives the accreditation from the private European accreditation body EABHES. Each campus offers first-class city-centers facilities equipped with modern design laboratories. The proximity with the cultural highlights in either Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nancy or Nice is an important asset for students wishing to discover the most vibrant and contemporary aspects of the French culture and the French creative scene. École de Condé is part of the academic partnership AD Education together with École Supérieure du Parfum, École Supérieure de Publicité, École Supérieure du Digital(www.ecole-superieure-du-digital.com)and IAAD Torino.
