Program Description:

About École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts

The École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) provides visual arts education and training, playing a vital role in the artistic and cultural scene of France. Founded in the 17th century by Louis XIV, ENSBA occupies a vast architectural complex in the heart of Paris. The grounds spread over more than two hectares between the Quai Malaquais and rue Bonaparte, opposite the Louvre Museum. ENSBA is structured around artistic studios run by renowned artists. This model of learning favours experimentation across multiple fields, diversity in practice, and cross-disciplinary development.


Course links

Studies at ENSBA are centred around a studio where students execute their work under the guidance of an established artist. Exchange students are required to join one of the 26 studios in the Artistic Practice Department. See the list of studio professors.

Course modules for ANU students are available in:

  • Drawing
  • Center of Impression / Multiples – etching, lithography, bookmaking, screen printing
  • Digital Technologies – digital printing, photography, video, sound, animation, interactivity, web design and 3D conception (modelling and printing)
  • Department Matter / Space – foundry work, forging, metalworking, modelling, mosaics, moldmaking and casting, stonecutting/woodcutting, painting, ceramics


30 ECTS = 24 ANU units



Accommodation links

ENSBA does not have accommodation on campus. Students would need to arrange their own accommodation. The CROUS of Paris manages a limited range of student housing close to ENSBA.



The costs of studying overseas vary greatly depending on your lifestyle and where you go. Major costs are your return airfare, accommodation and living expenses, which vary from country to country. Living and travel costs range from as little as $2000 in total for short-term international study programs, up to $2000 per month – more in some high-cost countries – for full semester or year programs. Some partner universities also require you to pay for health insurance, orientation or extra-curricular activities, so be aware that extra costs like these might pop up.

Indicative travel and living costs can be found on websites such as:

For all ANU endorsed programs you continue to pay your fees to ANU, but you are exempt from paying tuition fees to the institution overseas. Often long-term overseas study will not cost much more than studying in Australia and it will give you an experience of a lifetime.




It’s possible to hold more than one scholarship, bursary or grant at a time, so checking out all of the funding opportunities available to you is a good idea.

You may also be able to source some funding through our partner universities – they provide scholarships and grants to encourage you to choose them as your destination.

School of Art & Design Travelling Grants

The School of Art & Design has established four travelling grants to assist outbound students with the cost of international exchange. These scholarships range in value from $2,500 to $4,000 and are awarded once each year.

These scholarships do not require a separate application. Students accepted to go on a School of Art & Design exchange will automatically be considered for a School of Art & Design travelling grant based on all aspects of their student exchange application.


OS-HELP is a Government loan scheme to assist eligible Australian students enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place, who wish to undertake an overseas experience as part of their degree.



All courses are taught in French. For a successful exchange study experience, at least basic French language ability is recommended. No specific test score is required but studying French for one semester or more before arrival is strongly advised. Non-French speaking students will take a compulsory French language course during their exchange semester.



School of Art & Design only.

This university is a School of Art & Design exchange partner. Applications are restricted to students enrolled in School of Art & Design undergraduate or postgraduate programs.
