ASEICA’s annual Alumni evening took place on December 19th, 2019. In the midst of the weather warnings, 35 alumni studying or who have completed their studies in the UK, USA, Netherlands, Italy and France arrived at the AGORA to share their experience with current Lycée students. This event is a wonderful occasion for students to ask questions about life after the CIV and we hope that more students will attend in the future. A huge thanks to all of the alumni who attended and to our staff and parents volunteers who contributed to the success of this event. All lycée students should register their email addresses and stay in touch with guidance in order to be informed of future alumni events. This year we asked our alumni for some advice to current students. We hope that the reflections and advice from our wise alumni will inspire the Lycée students who are in the midst of their bac-blanc exams this week.

Study well but have a life outside of studying so you can show that you are an interesting and capable person beyond simply grades. James

Always keep a goal in mind and work towards it, don’t lose focus. Ava

Study regularly, follow the news and be curious. Rizlane

Don’t only focus on your grades but do many extra curricular activities that will make your profile unique. Margot

Organize your time well and be passionate. Paul

Every little thing you learn in the section becomes useful at one point. Do not think "Ah it'll be useless in a few years", you never know when you'll need the knowledge you acquired ! Noémie


Take advantage of what you learn in your OIB classes. The knowledge that will remain in your brains even after the bac will be so useful in your classes, but also in your general understanding of what goes on in the world. The works of literature that you study are really essential, and I still talk about them today. All of this background knowledge will come in handy when you are having conversations with people who matter. Salomé

Open up your possibilities by applying to different schools even if you aren't sure about going. The more options you have, the happier you will be. If you can't make it abroad right after Terminale it's ok! Stay in France and travel in the years that follow. Dinah
