Dear AT Europe,
I'm currently an Interior Design student in New York at NY School of Interior Design, and am interested in spending a semester studying in Paris.
I'm wondering if you know of any local design schools that I might look into that would be comparable to what I'm doing in NY. I'm not totally concerned that the credits transfer, but am more looking for the experience.... one major catch being that I don't speak French (but am planning to take language classes as well). The only program I've been able to find so far is the Paris American Academy, which unfortunately only offers a month-long summer program, year program, or spring term (I'm really looking mainly for this Fall semester). I was disappointed to see that Parsons Paris apparently does not offer Interior Design courses.
Apart from Paris American Academy, AT Europe is not aware of other English-language interior design programs in Paris. Interior design schools like the Ecole Camondo in Paris require a working knowledge of French.
