ICES (Catholic University of the Vendée) is a small private university, proposing nine areas of study and located in the Vendée region of western France, just 20 minutes from the Atlantic coast.
The school's mission is to create a spirit of cooperation between teaching staff and students in the acquisition of knowledge and to establish a personalised partnership with each individual student in order to help realise his or her professional aim. Our students follow classes, conferences and symposiums given by nationally and internationally renowned professors from France and abroad.
We have about 1000 students for the most part from all over France as well as international students from all around the world. If you are considering a fulfilling and exciting experience studying abroad, and Europe/France is an area where the culture and history interest you, then we would like you to seriously consider coming to ICES.
These pages attempt to explain why and how ICES could be such a good idea for you, for your personal growth, and for your professional future.
