Help when you need it, in and outside of the classroom. Get to know your APA peers during a three-week orientation period held at the beginning of the semester. During this time, you will begin the Intensive French Language course to prepare you for your courses and daily life in Paris. Workshops are offered to introduce you to life in France and to the French university system. You will take guided tours of the city and its neighborhoods, and visit museums and campuses.
