The École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon encourages foreign travel for study purposes, and participates in programmes administrated by the European Union (Erasmus), the Région Rhône-Alpes, the Office Franco-Allemand pour la Jeunesse (OFAJ), and the Conférence des Recteurs et des Principaux des Universités du Québec (CREPUQ).
Erasmus is the European program for higher education. It was created to favor student and teaching mobility between the member states of the extended European community. The signatory establishments of the Erasmus Charter benefit from a European subsidy allowing them to organize and to partially finance this mobility.
The student can leave to study in a partner establishment of the ENSBA Lyon or for training courses.
The 'Coopération des Recteurs et des Principaux' des Universités du Québec (CREPUQ) is a system of exchange between Quebec and French-speaking European countries. It allows students to benefit from an exchange in one of the establishments participating in the network. The ENSBA Lyon being a partner, the student can make his own research on the application procedures with the CREPUQ establishment which he will have chosen (by ex: Concordia or UQAM in Montreal, Laval in Quebec).
He will then have to fill in a form on the web site of the CREPUQ. A committee of the Quebecois establishment will decide on the final admission.
The ENSBA Lyon also signed agreements outside of these exchange program (excepting the European Union and Quebec) with schools in Mexico, in China....
Furthermore, the school maintains privileged links with establishments with which the exchanges can be negotiated.
