[French] Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture de Paris la Villette (ENSAPLV) 

Exchange Agreement signed in 2004
* Erasmus Plus (scholarship) Agreement in 2015 (~2021) 

In France, since the establishment of the Academy of Architecture in the 17th century, the study and teaching of architecture and the training of architects have been centralized by the state. Since the 19th century, under the new system of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts (Art University), it has become the center of architectural education in the world. The Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture de Paris la Villette is a direct descendant of this new system. 

Amid globalization since the 1990s, Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture de Paris la Villette, in particular, has been developing architectural education, not so much in terms of international education, but rather “architecture education for the earth itself,” with exchange agreements in North and South America, Asia including Japan and India, the Middle East and Africa, and encouraging overseas experience in the form of study abroad exchanges and overseas workshops. Every year, two of their students come to Kyushu University as exchange students. 

In 2015, in addition to the inter-departmental exchange agreement, an Erasmus Plus (scholarship) agreement was signed to ensure basic financial support for the exchange. The master’s students may be eligible for paid travel and accommodation expenses when they applied for the overseas exchange program.
