SAI invites students to experience an American-style education in the heart of Paris!
Founded in 1962, The American University of Paris (AUP) is one of the oldest American institutions of higher learning in Europe, offering a fully US-accredited liberal arts curriculum. AUP courses are taught in English, with additional electives available in French. The curriculum is discipline based, comparative, and cross-cultural, including a wide range of academic subjects.
SAI oversees and coordinates all aspects of student enrollment, including application processing, course selection and credit, visa advising, housing, student health insurance, and transcripts. In addition, SAI provides comprehensive student services, from the moment of application, through the on-site experience, until students return home.
In addition to supporting students throughout their stay in Paris, SAI’s on site staff also coordinates a range of activities and excursions throughout the term, including a weekend trip to the South of France (semester only), a visit to “l’Institut du Monde Arabe Museum”, a walking tour of Paris, a day Trip to Deauville, and much more.
SAI students in Paris experience the overlapping cultural currents which flow through this ancient city; from its origins as a small settlement on the banks of the Seine River, to its globally-recognized status as the capital of modern French culture. From astonishing architecture, to world-class fine arts, to a thriving business scene, the treasures of Paris many and varied.
