Come to the AUCP to live & learn with & like the French!

Setting Description:
Repeatedly voted France's favorite city by the French themselves, Aix-en-Provence is a university city full of sidewalk cafés, open-air markets, restaurants, shops, museums & cinemas. Cosmopolitan, lively, yet small enough to get to know and quickly feel at home, Aix-en-Provence offers multiple opportunities for engagement in the local culture and an active social life, setting the scene for students to take full advantage of a semester abroad.

Program costs include tuition, housing in carefully selected French families on a demi-pension basis (seven breakfasts and five dinners a week plus Sunday lunches) in Aix, comprehensive health & personal liability insurance, books and field trips.
