Student Life at IFMK Assas

Term time and half-term

Generally speaking, the first year at Ecole d’Assas begins during the first fortnight in September. The second year’s term begins at the start of September and the third year starts in October at the end of the full-time placement.

Half-term is similar to secondary school half-term: however, some placements may take place in half-term.

Ecole d’ASSAS does not provide catering but students have access to rooms with microwaves where they can reheat their meals.

College fees

College fees are set annually before term begins.

College fees are due in three instalments at the start of each trimester.
Loans can be taken out from a bank: banks usually provide better rates as a “student loan”. Students can take out insurance to cover breaks in study.
Grants can be provided to students whose family or personal income is too low. Please see the Useful information page for further information about grants.

Currently, college fees include the management of the AFGSU (First Aid Training Certificate) – level 2 (this certificate is compulsory if students wish to take the physiotherapy state qualification exam).
