About the Program

This program is designed for high-beginning and above French speakers and helps you improve your French language proficiency in a short period of time. Enroll in a French language course designed for your language level with a focus on oral expression, vocabulary development, and listening comprehension. Practice your new skills in academic outings and cultural activities, such as theater performance or festivals, then discuss your experiences in class as part of your coursework. If you enroll in consecutive sessions, you’ll be tested at the end of the session and, if appropriate, advance to a higher language level for the next session.

Aix Marseille University was founded in 1409; its Service Universitaire de Français Langue Etrangère is known as one of the country’s best French-language teaching centers. The school is a 15- to 20-minute walk from the Cours Mirabeau and hosts international students from more than 25 countries. 

When you study abroad in Aix-en-Provence, you can choose standard CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. Assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

Program Structure

Choose a 4-week session in June, July, or combine both. Each session, you'll enroll in 1 language course. Courses meet for 80 contact hours/5 credits over the session. You may earn 5 credits per session (up to 80 contact hours); if you choose to combine June and July sessions, you may earn up to 10 credits (up to 160 contact hours).

Classes meet daily in the morning, Monday-Friday, and on Wednesday afternoons you'll participate in academic outings. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

You'll take a written language placement exam before you arrive in Aix and a brief oral placement exam when you arrive in Aix. Based on the results, you'll be placed in a language class at your language level. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before youleave for France. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Avignon and the Pont du Gard

Avignon and the Pont du Gard

Visit the Papal Palace in Avignon, one of Europe's largest, most important medieval Gothic buildings. Once a fortress and palace, the papal residence was the seat of Western Christianity during the 14th century. Next, explore the Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge built in the 1st century. The Pont du Gard is the highest of all Roman aqueduct bridges and among the best-preserved.

Les Baux de Provence

Les Baux de Provence

First stop: Baux de Provence, a medieval fortified town with breath-taking views, to tour a hilltop chateau and learn about medieval Provence. Next, experience a mind-blowing audiovisual art show projected on limestone quarry walls at Les Carriéres. Enjoy a group lunch at Mas de la Pyramide, a quarry dating from Roman times that's now an agricultural museum featuring three centuries of farm life and trades.

Arles

Arles

A key headquarters for Roman military campaigns and center of the Christianization of Gaul, Arles offers windows to a colorful past. The Roman Empire's influence can still be seen in Arles; architecture, baths, aqueduct, mills, amphitheater, and more. Walking between the remnants of pillars and arches, it's easy to forget you're visiting an ancient part of Provence, especially when the ferias and other bull festivals charge the air with excitement.

The Luberon

The Luberon

The Luberon is a lush, green national park where mountain ranges surround a sweeping valley dotted with castles and unbelievable fairy-tale villages thought to be among the most beautiful in France. Stroll along the Sorgue River, which flows from an unknown source deep under Fountaine-de-Vaucluse; hike the red/orange/yellow ochre hills of Roussillon; and explore Gordes, a local commune. Can you discover the café where Russell Crowe filmed his scenes with Marion Cotillard for the movie A Good Year?
