A quality policy approved nationally and internationally
At the Centre International d’Antibes a quality standards policy has always been at the heart of what we do. Being affiliated to national and international quality standards bodies is the best way of putting this into practice and promoting this policy. Student satisfaction rates, with 15% of them returning within 3 years of their first stay, are the best reward.
The Centre International d'Antibes has been a member of SOUFFLE, the Professional consortium of French as a foreign language providers, since 1997.
Souffle's partners, 16 French language centers across the whole of France, Monaco and Switzerland, commit to upholding high standards of quality in their services and guarantee of good standard of provision.
Souffle members have been awarded official “QUALITÉ FRANÇAIS LANGUE ÉTRANGÈRE" certification by the French ministries of National Education, Higher Education and Research, Foreign Affairs and Culture and Communication.
The Centre International d’Antibes has been accredited by the Ministries of Culture of a number of German Länder which offer students financial support to study at the Centre International d'Antibes.
The Centre International d’Antibes has been accredited by EAQUALS since 2000.
A highly robust inspection process lasting several days is carried out by a team of inspectors every four years. Eaquals is an international, non-governmental organization that promotes excellence in language teaching. Eaquals takes part in the language projects of the Council of Europe and advises the European Commission. In this capacity, it therefore has an advisory role on issues around language provision.
The Centre International d'Antibes courses are accredited by the Swedish governmental body (CSN).
