IFALPES has been welcomed in the French Alps for more than 20 years, American CCIS students, who come to learn French in France and transfer US credits to their home universities.

The participants were welcomed at the town hall, by Christophe Chenu, delegate on charge of twinning committee, Mr Chenu presented the work engaged by the city in order to preserve the historical and architectural heritage, monitor the quality of water and air, preserve nature and improve urban development. Annecy is called the Venise of the Alps, and has the purest lakes in Europe. A very attractive place for business and tourism and for student exchange programs. As the international students bare witnessed, Annecy is great environment to study, discover the French culture and enjoy life.

Testimony from Hannah Gayhart, CCIS student studying at IFALPES:

“CCIS is a wonderful organization that connected me to IFALPES where I currently study abroad. I had many options to attend schools all over the world. CCIS helped me choose what school and city I fit best in. Studying in France has made me grow as a person and will forever have an impact on my life”.
