Past Review Fantastique !
I was able to improve my French dramatically. That alone is worth going abroad. I also have gotten to explore a lot of France and Europe. But most importantly, my time in France has demanded me to become independent in a way that is impossible at an American university. - Trinity University View Entire Review

About

In September, fall semester and academic year students enjoy several weeks in Paris - La Ville Lumière - taking an intensive language course at the Alliance Française language institute and living in a student residence. During the month's stay in Paris, students explore the city with the Resident Director, visiting many museums, monuments, and neighborhoods. In addition, the program provides tickets to the Opéra and/or Comédie française and to concerts of classical music, as well as excursions to sites outside of Paris such as Monet's garden at Giverny, Versailles, the castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte, or the Chartres cathedral. From October to mid-December, students take courses at the Institut de Touraine. Advanced students may be able to take courses the Université Francois Rabelais in disciplines such as history, literature, philosophy, and the social sciences.

The spring semester program offers an equally rich but different experience. It begins in early January when students enroll at the Institut de Touraine in Tours. The Institut courses end around the end of March. Advanced students who may have enrolled in courses at the University François Rabelais remain in Tours until the end of the university semester in late May. Students will have nearly a week in Paris followed by a week-long excursion to Senegal with the Resident Director.
