We understand that many of you may be thinking about the upcoming academic year and how we are preparing to welcome future PAA students.

We have compiled this text to help answer some frequently asked questions relating to the pandemic.


How will the pandemic affect my application?

We are doing everything we can to limit any impact coronavirus may have on current applications to study at PAA.

If you are unable to provide documents required to submit your application because of the pandemic, please contact us at [email protected].


What is PAA doing to prevent the entry and spread of COVID-19?

We would like to reassure students that their safety, and that of their teacher’s is our priority. We will continue to follow the French government’s guidance and have already introduced a range of measures to protect everyone including:

  • Deep clean and steam of PAA school and offices
  • Provision of handwashing and hand sanitizing measures
  • Small group teaching: studio-based work can be safely accommodated with social distancing
  • All teachers will be wearing face coverings
  • Students will be encouraged to wear face coverings whilst in the classrooms



We are doing our upmost to ensure that these measures do not compromise our academic standards and that students participating in PAA programs will have rich and fruitful experience.

Can I complete my studies online?

We expect students to travel to Paris where possible as our school will be open from September. We will continue to reassess the situation as it evolves.


Travel and self-isolation

If your arrival in France is delayed by travel restrictions, you will still be able to study with us. PAA staff and teachers will adapt to individual situations. If students are required to self-quarantine, we will do everything we can to support them and make sure their arrival is as comfortable as possible.


We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to PAA. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our admissions team at [email protected]/.
