The American University Center of Provence
The American University Center of Provence offers two full-immersion French programs designed for continuing self-discovery and promising international careers.
Internationally Recognized Certificates The AUCP, recognized by the French Ministry of Education, provides an authentically French academic and cultural experience for American college and university credit transfer. In addition to full-time college credit, upon completion of the program, AUCP students receive two prestigious and internationally recognized certificates, the TEF (Test d'évaluation du français) and the IDI (InterculturalDevelopment Inventory), attesting to their level of French language proficiency and their intercultural sensitivity. Effectively prepared to reach across orders of language and culture, AUCP alumni create and engage in a wide variety of meaningful cross-cultural careers.
Alumni Points of View
The homestay family allows you to truly experience French life & culture from the inside - not as a tourist or an American study abroad student - living with a homestay family has given me lifelong relationships with a family, here, who feel like my true family...
