French Alps

Just one hour from Geneva and set amidst stunning scenery the medieval town of Annecy provides the setting for our alpine studies. Located at the head of the glacial Lac d’Annecy the town has a quaint pedestrian centre and yet is a busy industrial and administrative centre for the region.

Within easy reach of our base in Sevrier, locations such as Chamonix, La Clusaz and Albertville are all possible destinations for our study units. There are a wide range of investigations that are possible in the region, together with leisure activities that ensures a happy balance between work and play. We would recommend that groups travel between May and October.
