What Do We Offer?


Toulon, 1 hour’s drive east from neighbouring Marseille, is the third-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast and a gateway to the famous French Riviera, less than one hour from celebrated seaside hotspots like Cannes, Antibes, Nice and Saint Tropez. Capital of the Var department, it is a major French naval base and home of the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle and her battle group.  The city is an important centre for naval construction, fishing, wine making, and the manufacture of aeronautical and electronic equipment. 

The location of Kedge’s Design School, Toulon is home to a thriving community of engineers, designers and entrepreneurs.  The annual Toulon-Hyeres International Design Parade brings together creative minds from across the globe to exchange ideas and push the boundaries on conventional thinking and approaches. Join us next summer to see for yourself!

Why choose this programme?

2 Intensive Courses

You can take just one course in one week, leaving with 5 ECTS credits, or both courses in the package (10 ECTS).  And if you want to mix and match with other Kedge Summer School programmes, you can follow as many as 6 classes from 10 June to 19 July. "Hop-On" - take a class for 2 weeks - then "Hop-Off" and travel Europe for two weeks, then come back and take another class.  Numerous possibilities exist to customise your programme according to your needs, interests, timing and budget!

All Courses Delivered in English

by a diverse, international pool of top-quality faculty members

Social and Company Visits

Every week, we include a company visit or social activity (included in tuition fees).  Our programme in Toulon will feature a visit to the annual Design Parade, and a day trip to Saint-Tropez!  

Customize YOUR Summer Programme According to Your Interests

Our flexible format allows you to follow our Programme Package in Toulon, or pick and choose courses at our Bordeaux and Marseille campuses that interest you the most to build your own "Hybrid" option
