Program Overview

Program Description:

You’ll earn up to 17 credits per semester studying at the Institut de Langue et de Culture Françaises (ILCF), a department of the Catholic University of Paris. Courses are taught in English and French with no previous French language study required.

While abroad in Paris, make a positive impact on the local community through volunteer work! AIFS can help you arrange local volunteer opportunities with charities and organizations such as: Les Restos du Coeur, which distributes food and hot meals to homeless people; Emmaüs, which provides literacy programs and leisure activities for disadvantaged children; and Secours Populaire, a charity that provides access to health facilities, education and food for the needy.

Live in a Parisian homestay or, for an additional fee, in a student residence or shared apartment. Homestay students will receive breakfast every day plus one meal a week. Residence students receive a meal plan for daily breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday. Snack and restaurant vouchers, along with three group dinners, are included for all students.

You’ll enjoy cultural and social activities such as guided city walks, visits to the many museums and cultural sites of Paris, opera and ballet performances and a half-day trip to the famous Château de Versailles.

An optional, 2-day trip to Normandy and Brittany is also available. A 2-night tour of London, England, is included for students on the AIFS Flight Package.
