Customize your program from a wide array of classes taught in French and a limited selection of English-taught courses. Classes at our affiliate institutions in the Paris university system are selected for the APA course catalog after carefully reviewing course descriptions, syllabi, faculty qualifications, and evaluations from previous students. Regardless of instruction language, these courses are taught by Paris university faculty for French students rather than an international student setting for a truly immersive experience.
Exclusive to APA students is a one-week add/drop period to choose courses that correspond best to their needs and interests. Take up to 10 classes during this "shopping" period and choose your favorite three or four at the end of the week to keep!
The French academic calendar runs from September to mid-May and includes a one-week fall break in October, a two-week Christmas break, a one-week winter break in February, and a one-week spring break in April.
