IS Aix-en-Provence / Coronavirus COVID -19

Dear students and partners,

Due to the health situation in France, IS Aix-en-Provence institute has had to close its doors and suspend all face-to-face courses from 16 March, for an indefinite period. The reopening of the institute is subject to the evolution of the Covid-19 situation and the instructions given by the French authorities.

Nevertheless, despite this situation, classes continue! Our teachers have already migrated the courses to a digital version. From now on, we are pleased to offer you distance-learning courses. Our teachers are fully committed to offering you quality teaching with online classes.

Interested? Feel free to contact us at Whether you are in France in confinement or elsewhere in the world, we would be happy to continue to accompany you in learning French.

In addition, we invite students who are already registered with courses scheduled to begin before May 31 to contact us at Together we will find a solution if the school is closed for a longer period.

For closed group courses, we will work with our partners to find solutions based on the program date. Please contact us at
