Study Abroad in France
Live in one of three treasured French locations for a semester, summer, or year.
Beauty. Glamour. Taste. Countless artists and scholars have been allured and inspired by France.
Whether you’re drawn to the bright lights of magical Paris, the rural charm of Rennes, or the student-populated Pink City of Toulouse, CIEE study abroad in France offers you academic and cultural options that provide an unparalleled experience abroad.
At our Open Campus Network center in Paris, you can create a custom study abroad experience with one or two additional destinations – or stay in the City of Light for your entire stay. Toulouse and Rennes have their own distinctive identities, and living there will open your eyes to the France beyond Paris.
Wherever you choose, homestays, direct enrollment options, volunteer opportunities, and excursions to points of interest in and around these cities make CIEE study abroad the ultimate way to sink into French culture and optimize your international stay.
