The ideal APA student is bright and motivated, internationally-minded who seeks a cross-cultural experience and has a desire to experience French and Francophone life.

We know that several factors play into a student’s ability to learn a second language (or third, or fourth!). The number of semesters of college French should be seen as a guideline when determining program eligibility. If you have any concerns, contact us and we will be happy to assist you in in determining your level.
