School Guidelines / Tuition
From the beginning of the school year, students must be aware of class timetables & follow them. Attendance is mandatory for all, and no unjustified lateness or absences will be tolerated
Students who anticipate an absence from Lisaa must inform the administrative offices, which reserve the right to refuse the request if the motive seems unwarranted. In case of frequent lateness or absences, the student will be summoned by the Department Director. Following the meeting, the student’s stance will determine the measures taken by the school’s director. In case of several warnings, this could lead to expulsion.
As part of their training, students are obliged to hand in a certain number of projects. The frequency of the projects is determined by each professor and projects may take place either within or outside actual classes.
To meet course program requirements the student should anticipate that an appreciable amount of work must be done outside the classroom.
Work will be commented on and graded, and these grades allow the staff to follow a student’s evolution and observe his/her work and effort. Any work turned in late will be graded as 0 (which will influence the student’s grade average). Report cards will be sent out twice a year.
In addition to training, several juries are organized during the school year to prepare each student for his portfolio presentation. These juries will also provide evaluations.
Trips / Excursions
At LISAA School of Design, we firmly believe that trips/excursions are an integral part of any well-rounded educational program. These excursions are carefully organized, and their main goal is to combine learning and fun, while giving our students the chance to come in close contact with culture, history and traditions to explore new facets of Art &Design. Students will be taken for two excursions in one academic year. It is mandatory for students to participate and bear the cost of such excursions. Work done there will be evaluated internally and by jury.
An overall view of grades obtained throughout the year will determine a student’s promotion to the following year.
Students are required to maintain a correct attitude in the classroom and in the school in general. Any offence to this protocol may result in a warning to the student. Any decision by the administration, for indiscipline or poor work, is non- negotiable and may result in expulsion.
For reasons of security and hygiene, smoking or use of any illegal substances is strictly forbidden in LISAA premises. School will not be responsible for any ailment/ injuries/ accidents or any other mishappenings of any nature inside and outside the campus.
