The program lets students live and study in a university town in a spectacular alpine setting. The program has two levels—Level 1: Intensive French Language, for students at the intermediate level; and Level 2: Advanced University Studies, for students already proficient in French. In addition to courses, the program offers field trips to acquaint students with other significant and historic French cities. Students may enroll in the Grenoble program in the fall or spring semesters. However, students are encouraged to study abroad for an entire academic year. Program participants can continue in Grenoble or enroll in the Paris Internship Program the following semester after successful completion of the program in Grenoble. Students considering this option should complete the application process for both programs before departing for Grenoble.
