There's a lot to love about studying abroad on the French Riviera. But why Nice in particular? Maybe it's because:

1. 300+ Days of Sunshine a Year. Yep, you read that right...300+!

2. Sophia Antipolis (aka the Silicon Valley of Europe). This science park just outside of Nice houses more than 1,300 international companies in information and communications technology, biotechnology, and research. It's also home to two of our partner universities: SKEMA Business School and the Polytech campus of Université Nice Sophia Antipolis. Think of the education and extracurricular opportunities!

3. Cultural Immersion. Practice your French at the local markets. Tour the museums. Visit a perfumery nearby. Should we keep going?

4. Central Location. When you're not enjoying #3, you're a short train ride away from Cannes and Monaco, and a quick flight to nearby cities like Barcelona, Rome, and Milan.

5. School-Life Balance. Studying abroad isn't just about the classroom—in fact, a lot of the learning experiences happen outside the classroom. When you're not taking courses at a local university, get out and have fun. You have everything from beaches to mountains to explore. What are you waiting for?

To join us on the French Riviera next spring, make sure you submit your application by Tuesday, October 20th for one of these two direct enrollment programs:
