AUP is more than the best of “both” worlds—it’s the best of the world. You get the small, discussion-based classes and close student faculty-interaction that typifies the best of the American education model. You get the entirety of Paris—with its grand parks and boulevards, magnificent museums and monuments, and intimate shops and cafes—as your campus.
But you also get a community of highly talented, passionately curious students and faculty from every part of the globe, and a network of successful alums in almost every international field. If a full life in and of the world—the whole world—is your ambition, we’d like you to apply to AUP.
Because AUP actively seeks students from around the world and academic calendars vary from country to country, AUP accepts applications year round for both fall and spring admission. Like other high-caliber universities across the globe, AUP lets you apply online via Common Application or The American University of Paris’ own application portal.
Financial aid and scholarships
An AUP education is an important investment in your future, and we work hard to make it an affordable one. Our tuition and costs are competitive with those of small, selective universities in the United States, and we offer merit scholarships and need- and merit-based financial aid that make affording AUP even more manageable.
We’d be happy to welcome you to our urban campus! We offer campus tours and information sessions on Mondays and Fridays throughout the year. Sign up for a tour today.
If you aren't able to visit Paris in person, join us from home through our Online Open House or participate in one of our Online Information Sessions (OIS). The online sessions are presented by an International Admissions Counselor and are followed by Q&A.
Answering your questions
Our office comprises dedicated counselors with international backgrounds like yours. They work directly with you on your application and are available to answer any questions that you may have about our University. If you have not previously been in touch with us and want to find out more about AUP, please send us a request for information and the admissions counselor for your area will get back to you. We look forward to hearing from you!
