    Sarah - 2017

    In July 2017, I participated in the UQ Abroad short-term experience at Sciences Po, Paris. I had an amazing time and would definitely recommend it. I studied French at C2 level which helped me to prepare for the external Alliance Française DALF exam. I was very impressed with the quality of the teaching staff and the course.

    Oliver - 2017

    The classes were exceptionally engaging, with staff that listened, cared and engaged in your experience.

     Living as a student in Paris is hands down the best way to experience the vibrancy and complexity of the city, and I would recommend the experience to anyone else in a heartbeat. Memories of experiences like Bastille day in front of the Eiffel tower and seeing the final leg of the Tour de France will remain with me forever, as will my new deep appreciation for what it is to be French in the modern world.
