France Football Academy


Welcome to the EduKick France Football Academy! Our academy welcomes players from all over the world, aged 14 to 24,  who wish to experience a one-year cultural, linguistic and football immersion in France.

EduKick is proud to partner with a top French Football Academy to ensure that participating players have “the French language & culture football experience of a lifetime!”

EduKick believe that living, studying and training in a foreign country is an invaluable experience that a player will never forget and the benefits of such an experience will be embedded positively into that individual for the rest of his or her life.


Students are accommodated in twin room accommodation at the International College of Cannes. Single rooms are available for a supplemental fee. Each twin room consists of: 2 single beds, 2 x desks, 2 x closest (for clothes storage) and 1 wash basin.

Common showers and toilets are located on each floor of the residence. Bed Linen is provided by the college (washed and changed every 10 days). Students should bring their own bath towels/toiletries and rooms are cleaned daily by College cleaning staff.

Students eat 3 meals each day at the college restaurant. A salad bar and a menu are provided for each meal. On weekends a brunch replaces breakfast and lunch.

Upon arrival on campus, students receive a “Welcoming Folder” containing meal times, first meeting time, a city map of Cannes, the College security rules and leisure time program.

Education Program

Year Long, Half Year & Monthly Senior program participants aged 16+ attend French Language classes at the International College of Cannes. The College provides a whole range of French language courses from Elementary to Proficiency level. The faculty is made up of 20 professors holding university teaching degrees who are trained in the latest teaching techniques and share many years of experience teaching French as a foreign language.

The initial morning of academic study is reserved for a placement test to better evaluate the student’s current knowledge of French, choosing a course level that best suits his/her personal needs. There are 15 different levels available and class size is typically between 6-14 students maximum.

Students attend 3 classes per day (45 minutes per class) between 9:00am – 12:00pm.

Year Long, Half Year & Monthly Junior program participants aged 12-15 years old attend the College des Campelieres located in the heart of Cannes.  Officially recognized by the Ministry of Education and by the French Football Federation, the Sport-Etudes department of College des Campelieres was set up in 2004. The class schedule is adapted to the concept of extra sports hours so as to enable the students to attend special football practices.

Every year, 16 to 18 local French students are granted the possibility to enter the football department at College des Campelieres. The first objective, just like a normal school, is education. EduKick International students are granted automatic acceptance to the football department!

Professional Club Exposure Programme participants receive daily French language classes at the International College of Cannes. The aim of the course is to acquire abilities of communication in daily social exchanges and provide the participants with the basic necessary communication skills required on the soccer field.
