CEFAM is located near the center of France’s third largest city, Lyon. CEFAM is conveniently located near student residences, public transportation, and the city center of Lyon. Lyon has a rich history dating back 2000 years, and provides numerous opportunities to enjoy the cultural, culinary, and artistic aspects of life in the city. Lyon is also a major student center in France, with the student life and cultural activities that make Lyon a fun and exciting city. CEFAM is near the two main Lyon train stations, which link Lyon to Paris, Geneva, Barcelona, and other European cities. Lyon is served by Saint Exupery International Airport.
Students at CEFAM come from every continent and twenty-six countries. CEFAM prides itself on its “international vocation” and encourages every student to include a significant international experience in his or her studies. Because CEFAM students come from around the world, numerous opportunities exist for students to come into contact with individuals from other cultures. Student clubs and associations organize culturally based events which bring all students into contact with fellow-students of different nationalities. Students are also encouraged to seek internship opportunities outside of their home countries.
Housing is easy to find near CEFAM’s downtown facilities. Most students live in official “student residences” located a 10-15 minute walk from the school. Students may benefit from the student housing subsidy. Students may choose to live in dorm-style housing, or in private studio/apartments. All housing is close to the school, public transport, and the city center.
