Yes, it was well worth while. I learned so much from AUP and France. It is just one of those experiences you have to do for yourself, I could never just write it. - Hamline University View Entire Review
I found it an incredibly worthwhile experience in terms of personal growth and the ability to navigate a new culture and new people and traveling like I have never had the opportunity to do before. I say that I wouldn't choose this program again because I think I would have liked to be in a program more immersed in French langua... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I matured, learned how to handle myself independently in a place completely out of my comfort zone, and navigate and troubleshoot situations that I never faced before. I definitely feel prepared to tackle many more adventures and challenges in my future. - 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
classrooms. Faculty lead cultural study trips around the world to apply classroom learning to actual economies, social systems, governments and organizations. This integrated curriculum allows our graduates to go anywhere, meet anyone, do anything, and achieve success in a wide range of compelling careers.
