Study Abroad in Paris

What to Expect in Paris

You know what it’s like to fall in love—but Paris won’t break your heart. 

You’ll want to spend all of your time admiring cultural icons like the Eiffel Tower and getting lost in the city’s exquisite art scene while studying abroad in Paris. On an average day you might savor the decadent French cuisine at a local restaurant and take a walk along the River Seine and wander aimlessly through the city streets for hours. 

When you study abroad in Paris, every day is magnifique, and it’s all in the name of love. Je t’aime, Paris!
