Académie de Paris Authorization:
Under the French education system, private schools are either “sous contrat” – with the government paying teachers’ salaries and the school following the national curriculum – or “hors contrat” - not funded by the government, and therefore not obligated to follow any particular curriculum.

Paris University of International Education is a "hors contrat" school, therefore our awards are not equivalent to awards of French public educational institutions. Paris University of International Education delivers all its programs in the English medium and exclusively enrolls international students outside of France. Paris University of International Education seeks only international accreditation and professional memberships outside of France due to the nature of its authorization and operations. 

Note: Paris University of International Education (PUIE) was formerly known as Paris College of International Education (PCIE)

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy.
