IFA Paris’ pedagogy is based on a holistic approach. We accompany our students in a journey of personal and professional self-discovery through a carefully crafted teaching and learning strategy. With more than 50 nationalities representing our student population, our teams are constantly evaluating any potential emotional distress that could be generated by a cultural shock. Therefore, we implement Social and Emotional Learning, as well as Trauma Informed Teaching, to ensure that any potential issues can be addressed.
We do not limit ourselves to deliver knowledge benchmarked against standardized outcomes. On the contrary, we leverage on our flexible organizational structure to ensure we stimulate students’ creativity and critical thinking skills by confronting them with unconventional projects. The past decades have taught us that the most important quality to have, not only as a future professional but also as an individual, is the capacity to handle risk and uncertainty. Therefore, within all our academic programs, and whether our students are in their junior or senior year, we challenge them with professional case studies that make them deconstruct the norms in order to develop innovative solutions to the fashion industry’s most pressing issues.
