Overall Experience
I greatly expanded my understanding and ability to speak french and I also learned a ton about French history and art through an excursion based art history course. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself, and the class taught me a lot of history and architectural terms and movements. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Every day in a foreign country brings many opportunities for cultural, educational, and emotional experiences. This being my first trip abroad (and in an airplane!), I was very nervous about traveling to a new country alone, but I was able to fit right in with amazing people who were going through some of the same things I was. ... - Mercyhurst College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with AIFS: Paris - Institut de Langue et de Culture Françaises
I gain so much from studying abroad. Traveling and actually staying long enough abroad to be submerged in the culture and traditions can open your mind and expose you to different views from your own. Studying abroad definitely gives you the tools to be better prepared for the fast-paced globalized world we live in. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I would definitely say that I gained more outside the classroom than I did inside the classroom, which doesn't mean that my classes were useless but, rather, indicates the value of living in a french-speaking country. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

About

Courses are taught in English or French, with no previous French language study required. Please visit website for program-specific details and eligibility requirements. 

Homestay accommodation is included in the program fee. Depending on the term selected, additional options such as an apartment or student residence may be available for an additional fee.

You’ll enjoy cultural and social activities such as guided city walks, visits to the many museums and cultural sites of Paris, French cooking classes, opera and ballet performances, and day trips to Monet’s Garden in Giverny and the famous Château de Versailles. Excursions vary by program and term but typically include great options like a 2-day trip to Normandy and Brittany, a 2-day trip to the Loire Valley and more.

AIFS in Paris offers a unique academic program at the ILCF, a well-known and highly respected private university, for students who want to learn French, take courses related to French culture, all in a “French atmosphere.” AIFS students have the ability to take art and music courses through the Académie de Port Royal and Schola Cantorum respectively. Volunteer opportunities are also available.

Paris is one of the world’s great capitals of culture. Known throughout the world for its museums and historical monuments, the city itself is laid back and easy to get around. The top restaurants and the greatest names in fashion sit next to vintage stores and take-away crêpes stalls. As our Resident Director always says, “Paris... it’s your campus!”
