Any Questions?

Lindsay Turlan and Monika Markley, our dedicated US-based representatives, are the go-to people for all aspects of the application process, including billing, pre-departure preparation, and university liaising. If you have any questions, get in contact with them and they will be happy to help.

Eligibility

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-level French should be seen as a guideline rather than a requirement. We invite you to contact us at usa@apaparis.com and we will be happy to assist you if you are unsure of your language level.
