Home to the winter Olympics, cutting-edge nuclear physics research, and 60,000+ students from France and around the world, Grenoble in the French Alps offers a picturesque setting in which to immerse into local culture. Miles of Alpine trails, mountain lakes, and more than a dozen ski resorts within an hour’s drive make this culturally diverse college town a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Studying abroad in the French Alps puts a wonderland of natural beauty within reach; explore the hiking trails and Olympic ski slopes that surround Grenoble, or try your hand at indoor climbing, kayaking, or paragliding in the area's national parks. But the city is also a center in the fields of physics, computer science, and nanotechnology, as well as a hub for business studies and language learning. Take French classes at Université Grenoble - Alpes, study business at Grenoble Ecole de Management (ranked amongst the world's top 50 business schools), and gain hands-on experience through volunteering and career workshops. Wherever your academic, career, and personal interests lie, you'll find the right program in the French Alps.
France has long drawn intellectuals, artists, authors, and revolutionaries, serving as a muse that sparks creative thought and action across the centuries. The country’s colorful history lives on in its iconic architecture, prestigious universities, and rich culture. In a country the size of Texas, you’ll find hundreds of renowned galleries and museums to explore, natural beauty ranging from 1,240 miles of beaches to fragrant lavender fields, five major mountain ranges to world-famous culinary traditions. Here, you can hone your French language proficiency, gain skills in an international internship, and earn credit toward your degree…students of all majors and all language levels will find the right program in France.

Excellent School, Friendly People
The people were friendly, the activities were plentiful, the school was excellent, and the city was beautiful. I befriended students from every continent. Not to mention the outdoor recreation available here was amazing, I was able to climb, ski, run, dance, and hike.
