Located in the beautiful city of Bressuire, France, our campus, a public school of the Ministry of Agriculture, provides courses in the areas of agriculture, food industry, laboratory and environment. Gathering more than 230 students in continuous training and 400 in apprenticeship training, we rely on innovative and modern equipment to assure the best studying environment for our learners.
Campus Les Sicaudières offers professional and technological trainings in:

All our trainings are in French. This is important to have at least a CEFR level B2 in French if you want to join our courses.
In order to provide the most accurate lessons possible, the school has developed its own farm. The 88 hectares are used mainly as pasture for the 40 Rouge des Prés suckler cows and the 180 sheep. The farm owns 3 farmhouses and 7000m² livestock building and equipment such as tractors or trailers. We also installed 2 classrooms and one exposition room. The farm’s shop commercializes all the products produced and processed on our campus.
