Become a Paris College of Art Student

Choosing the right school requires getting to know a school as well as you can before and during the application process. This is why we encourage you to visit our campus, attend Open House, view our students’ work, and get familiar with our program offerings, courses and faculty background.

Our Admissions Counselors and Alumni Ambassadors are available to answer your questions, guide you through the admissions process, and provide support and insight that will be invaluable as you make your transition to becoming a Paris College of Art student.

Open House

Our Open Houses are filled with activities for you and your parents to learn more about art and design education on the university level, including workshops, a design management lecture, Masters programs info session, individual portfolio reviews, a student panel discussion, and other exciting events.

Whether you are in the early years of high school, are a working professional looking to change career or already an accepted candidate, Open House is a great opportunity for you to meet admissions counselors, faculty and current PCA students.

PCA Open House Grant

If traveling to Paris to attend Open House seems beyond your budget you will be interested to learn about the PCA Open House Grant. For students who enroll into one of our full-time degree programs after attending an Open House event, we will reduce the first semester tuition costs by up to 1000 euros to cover the cost of your trip to attend Open House.*

*You must provide your travel costs receipts so please hold on to them!

PCA Virtual Open House

If you can’t make it to Paris, we will be live streaming the event so that you can participate in real time from wherever you are around the world or later watch the videos.
