general policy

stage1

Like many of its sister schools, ESAC often entertains requests for internships and visits…Because of the space available to us, we have not been able to write a concrete policy regarding interns and exchange students. Requests are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. The decision depends on the program the request is addressed to, the time of year, the workload of the responsible professor, and the current organization of studio space. Every intern or exchange student, be they attending ESAC in an observatory or an active capacity, must respect our rules and must be covered by specific insurance (generally connected to a convention between schools).

observatory exchanges

Students from circus preparatory schools (Fedec type II) can visit ESAC as observers. Often these visits are already integrated into their curricula. Students benefit from seeing how a degree-program school is run. Even if they don’t involve physical practice, these visits allow students to meet professors and students. Observatory exchanges allow potential future students to get to know the school and the city, and to begin to understand what their lives would be like should they choose to attend ESAC. Generally, this type of visit lasts two days, which is just enough to grasp the essentials. Preparing for degree-program entrance exams is not only a physical mission—identifying what you want out of a school is part of the necessary preparation, and this kind of observatory exchange help students accomplish just that.

We generally welcome observatory exchange students between January and April, but any proposition will be read and evaluated by the office: silvia.ubieta@esac.be

practical exchanges

Only available for students from other degree programs (Fedec type I), these exchanges are generally organized by schools’administrative bodies. The duration of the visit will depend on the policy of each school but will not exceed one week1. Practical exchanges can be welcomes October through April, but each case will be individually analyzed by the office. Requests can be sent to: info@esac.be

observatory internships

Many students coming from other higher-education programs (especially arts universities) ask to come to ESAC as interns in order to stimulate their own work. These requests will be analyzed on a case-by-case basis and should be addressed to: info@esac.be

Please note that we reserve the rights of any image of the students or activities of ESAC; that is to say, that photos and video may not be used outside of an academic setting. ESAC requires that observatory intern submit their finished work to ESAC, and that they sign an agreement with the school before the start of the internship.
