February 11, 2022 Paris Was Pretty Good
It was mostly worthwhile, the pandemic was definitely a challenge. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
For me, this was a unique experience as I got to immerse myself in a different part of France. I grew up in the suburbs of Paris but had never lived in the city. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This was a great opportunity to experience Paris and travel. The classes are not as vigorous as Wellesley, but the professors are nice and courses are interesting. The best thing about AUP is the location. It is located in the 7th arrondissement, and the apartments are not too far. I was also able to travel a lot and experienced... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to live in a new culture and try to speak a new language. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

It’s always interesting to be in another country, particularly because it is when I reaches my identity and how I view/and how I’m viewed outside of the American context. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself and how I navigate unfamilar situations and new cultures. I feel like I gained a sense of independence. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained so much insight about myself and the way I interact in situations where I don't know the native language. I got pushed out of my comfort zone so many times but the experience showed me I could face any situation I was given. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was able to gain a better sense of how the cultural identity in the new destinations that I visited are intertwined with the shaping of economic and social growth. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned that I am capable of going to a foreign country with a foreign language and surviving (and thriving). This was something I was nervous about, but overall I have learned that it is okay to be uncomfortable.

January 22, 2023 End Of Beginning
I learned a lot about myself and what I want to do in the future. I would recommend everyone do this at least once. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to be fully independent and responsible for myself. I also practiced my French. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I mostly enjoyed the culture and food, but I also learned how Parisians live--everyday and overall, which prompted me to reevaluate how I live. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I was able to relax and not take any science courses (I am a science major) while I was abroad so that was very rejuvenating and a great change in pace. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was incredibly worthwhile. I learned different languages, traveled, made friends, and worked on the side at Fashion Week. I loved AUP, Paris and the friends I made along the way. - American University of Paris View Entire Review
Had a good time getting to know the city and people - Wellesley College View Entire Review

About AUP

Chartered as a liberal arts college in 1962, The American University of Paris is today an urban, independent, international university located at the meeting point of France, Europe, and the world. The University provides an academic learning experience in the heart of Paris that places your personal, intellectual, and professional development at its core.

AUP students are those that choose to live and learn internationally. They bring to the classroom their diverse cultural backgrounds, languages and perspectives, and the sense of adventure to become part of a global learning community outside of their own nationality and experience. In this multi-cultural context, AUP provides you with a strong academic foundation that supports critical thinking and practical application, and enables you to become a translator of international culture with the capacity to analyze, adapt, and thrive in any environment.

At AUP our faculty, themselves hailing from around the world, help you to cross intellectual, cultural and geographic borders with ease, enabling you to be a responsible actor and leader in today’s competitive global work environment. The University faculty provides a curriculum that combines liberal arts inquiry, preparation for professional life, and student-centered, active learning in small

This integrated curriculum allows our graduates to go anywhere, meet anyone, do anything, and achieve success in a wide range of compelling careers.
