October at the crossroads

(This article is part of our Current Events series)

October is a month at the crossroads. Summer’s leisures have come to an end, fall is in full swing as the school year settles in and winter occasionally pokes its nose on frosty mornings. Barbecuing is officially over but it is not yet the season to serve choucroute or set up the raclette on the table. Halloween was itself meant to be a sort of crossing of paths though of a different, netherworldly, kind.

SIU Paris Campus

Current Events Launch 2019

With the September term well under way and the fall right around the corner, the Paris campus now looks forward to the launch of “Current Events”. Every start of the month, we’ll be giving a brief overview of a selection of classes running at Schiller Paris that very month. The objective is double: provide readers an idea of our course curriculum on the one hand, and a perspective making sense of the whole on the other. Calling it “Current Events” becomes all the more appropriate as we attempt to tie in our curriculum selection with ongoing events taking place in the world at large. The mission of Schiller is to provide students a theoretical grounding and practical skills that they can deploy in the successive stages of their careers. Course content, the learning experience in Paris, interactions with faculty and classmates from around the world – all of this and more are what make the a Schiller degree a key moment before stepping into the wider world and into the current of events that continuously make their mark.

Meet Philippe: from Madrid to Paris

Hear from Philippe from Spain, SIU Madrid student who spent two semesters in the Paris campus. 

Transferring from the Madrid campus to the Paris campus sure was a challenge.

Moving into a new city which I thought I’d dislike but as soon as I got there and saw the campus I started meeting new people right away, and adapting to the classes well. I ended up staying for two semesters because the city was so lively and full of things to do, you sort of have to find your way around but once you have your friends and your places you go to, anywhere can feel like a home.
