Program Overview

Program Description:
A university town, Aix-en-Provence has been a center of study for French students since a university was founded there in the 15th century. More than forty thousand students live and study in the city. Aix Center is located in the heart of this academic community-in the oldest part of town, next to the Insitut d'Etudes Politiques and opposite the Cathedrale Saint-Sauveur.

Designed for all majors, the Aix Center is renowned for its founding philosophy of making it possible for students with beginning French language skills to study in France. The structure of its program, which combines French language study with a range of liberal arts courses taught in both English and French, has opened the doors of cross-cultural learning to thousands of students who would otherwise have been denied the opportunity to study abroad.

The program includes 15 Fairfield University undergraduate credits with grades, onsite student support with 24-hour emergency coverage, cultural activities, insurance, including full medical coverage and medical emergency evacuation and homestays.
Setting Description:
The renovated Chapelle des Penitents Bleus serves as the headquarters of the Aix Center. Located in the heart of the old city of Aix, the chapel houses classrooms; a library with a permanent collection, electronic databases, and reading rooms; a student lounge, and administrative offices.
