Live the Parisian lifestyle and improve your French with APA's Paris Program. Depending on your language level, build your schedule by choosing courses at our University of Paris and higher education partner institutions, in-house electives, or replace a class with an independent study/research. (More details on course options on the APA website.) Receive weekly one-on-one language support with a French professor and teaching assistant. Academic support is available throughout your term in Paris.
Weekly cultural events like concerts, theater, and exclusive day and weekend excursions are included. To facilitate a truly immersive experience, students live with carefully selected French hosts, in student residences, or independent apartment living. Many take advantage of community involvement opportunities like volunteering in an English class at a local elementary school or joining an intramural sports team. Two-month, full-time professional summer internships are available.
