FEDE SCHOOLS

FRANCE - LYON

Established in 1989, ILCP, the Institute of Portuguese Language and Culture, is a private institution specialised in Portuguese and lusophone language and culture courses.

The principle of its pedagogical approach hinges on full immersion in a Portuguese and Brazilian atmosphere, surrounded with teachers who are natives of Portugal and Brazil, in order to enhance the students’ learning process. ILCP offers its custom-made pedagogy and quality teaching approach to children, adults and professionals.

ILCP’s key asset resides in the recognition of its courses, as the lessons delivered are recognised by the Portuguese Ministry of Education – which is the case for only two private schools in the world – thus serving as a token of trust and quality.

It also serves as the examinations centre of the Luso-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Lisbon.

In addition to the educational dimension of its mission, ILCP is also very invested in promoting the lusophone culture. To this end, the institution regularly organises cultural events (conferences, films, theatre, meetings with famous Portuguese writers, Fado Festival, etc.).

The FEDE is an INGO International Non-Governmental Organisation and a supranational institution that was created in 1963, which is endowed with participatory status with the Council of Europe. It federates an international network comprised of over 500 higher and professional education institutions in 35 countries across 4 continents, which share a common project that is hinged on academic excellence, pedagogical innovation, scientific research and openness to the world. The FEDE delivers 90 European degrees that are available in English and in the national language, from the Foundation Degree, the European Bachelor’s Degree, the European Master’s Degree to the DBA Doctorate of Business Administration. The FEDE counts an international network of over 180,000 alumni.
