Study abroad through the University of California in an Education Abroad Program (UC EAP) in Lyon, France!

The Mini and More Magical Paris of France

Lyon is small enough to not feel lost, but large enough that there is never-ending city life and student life. The metro/tram/bus system is incredible and everything is easily and quickly accessible. The French are welcoming (unlike my experiences in Paris) and usually speak French to you, which is great because when you are abroad you hope that they want you to speak their language and they help you to learn! I know that finding housing was difficult for many, but I found a host family from the advertisements the advisor sent me before I came here and I could not be happier. Sciences Po was difficult but interesting, and students were ALWAYS open to helping me out and letting me see their notes. This experience is unforgettable and I highly recommend it. The city is also easily accessible to Italy, South of France, Paris, the sea, the mountains, and the rest of Europe, as it is a center for travel by train and by plane. I highly recommend it to anyone!!!
