FEDE SCHOOLS

FRANCE - LA FERTÉ-BERNARD

The “Maison Familiale Rurale” (Rural Family Home) was founded in 1964 as public-partnered private school. At the beginning, it proposed some agricultural-based trainings and classes. During the 80s, the Administration Council decided to focus on the forestry, in order to answer both the families’ and enterprises’ demands, progressively increasing the level of the offered qualifications. From the 90s, it was chosen to add a complementary formation looking towards the environment, besides the forestry one. Today, the offer concerning the certifications that is proposed has reached its best and it allows us to host 142 students (45 of which are apprentices). The classes start from the 4ème up to the Bachelor.

The FEDE is an INGO International Non-Governmental Organisation and a supranational institution that was created in 1963, which is endowed with participatory status with the Council of Europe. It federates an international network comprised of over 500 higher and professional education institutions in 35 countries across 4 continents, which share a common project that is hinged on academic excellence, pedagogical innovation, scientific research and openness to the world. The FEDE delivers 90 European degrees that are available in English and in the national language, from the Foundation Degree, the European Bachelor’s Degree, the European Master’s Degree to the DBA Doctorate of Business Administration. The FEDE counts an international network of over 180,000 alumni.
