Applications for the next group at ANRT Nancy is open until June 30. One can apply with their own design or research topic or pick one of the proposed ones. No tuition fee and one even receives a €4000 research grant for the 18 months.
Also open for applications, until June 15, is the post-graduate course in typeface design at ESAD Amiens lasting 16 months, also no tuition, also international English and French speaking.
I have visited, talked and taught at both programs in the past and they are absolutely excellent places to learn about type in enjoyable environments and with fabulous teachers. Go go apply already!
