During the course

Our success in job placement among graduates shows how much professional opportunities are found in a multiplicity of artistic fields. The isdaT prepares its students for this versatility in terms of status, professions and artistic experiences.

In art, design, graphic design

Internships

Internships are part of the isdaT curriculum. The institute promotes internships abroad or in professional organisations. They allow students to compare what they’ve learned with the reality of the artistic world at festivals, art centres, galleries, artists’ studios, graphic designer studios, publishers, architectural firms, companies etc. These internships take place on a compulsory basis in the first and second cycle. It is also possible to do additional internships outside the dedicated periods.

Gap year

The isdaT allows its students to benefit from a so-called “gap” period. This period allows the student to temporarily and voluntarily suspend their studies in order to acquire personal or professional experience, either independently or supervised in a host organisation in France or abroad.

The gap can take 4 forms:

  • training in a different field from the training originally enrolled in,
  • experience in a professional environment,
  • a civic service commitment,
  • a project to create an activity as a student entrepreneur.

The gap period lasts for one year and always coincides with the start of the school year. It concerns students regularly registered at isdaT, during their studies. It’s available in the second cycle, at the end of year 3 or between years 4 and 5, subject to obtaining 60 annual credits.

Preparation for professional life programme

Knowing the ecosystem of creative professions allows future artists, designers and graphic designers to embark on their professional careers with confidence and autonomy. In partnership with the BBB centre d’art, the preparation for professional life programme offers students (years 3 and 5) and young graduates the opportunity to understand the socio-professional context of working as an artist and to interact with professionals.

Involvement in scale 1 projects as part of the institute’s partnership policy

Grâce aux partenariats réguliers développés par l’institut au titre de sa programmation culturelle ou de son implication dans les réseaux de diffusion, différentes expériences hors les murs sont offertes aux étudiant·es. L’isdaT est notamment membre actif des réseaux PinkPong et Air de Midi (respectivement, fédération des structures dédiées à l’art à l’échelle de l’agglomération toulousaine et de la région Occitanie) et porte avec ces réseaux différents festivals, journées d’études, ou dispositifs de soutien à l’émergence artistique. Ces opportunités sont créées spécifiquement en fonction de la pertinence des projets repérés et discutés avec nos partenaires chaque année.

Here are a few examples:

  • interior design of the Printemps de septembre space at L’Adresse by 15 students in collaboration with the studio Martinez Barat Lafore architects,
  • work by our students in a penitentiary environment (at Seysses prison) as part of the Approach course taught by Professor Etienne Cliquet,
