Summer School

AUP Summer School allows you to immerse yourself in French culture and history while earning credits towards your degree or as part of your continuing education by auditing classes. Join our intensive programs in French language or Creative Writing to improve your skills or check out a new field like art history or fashion. Whatever you choose, AUP Summer School provides the ideal mixture of in-class learning and creative exploration of Paris, combining the best of our academic programs with excursions and events around the city. Whether you take one class or a few, you will get to experience the best of what both AUP and Paris have to offer.
