Study Abroad - Aix Summer Calendar

PLEASE NOTE: IAU HAS MOVED TO A FULLY REMOTE/VIRTUAL SUMMER SESSION THIS SUMMER 2020 DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. NEW SUMMER 2020 DATES & DETAILS BELOWPLEASE VISIT THIS LINK FOR FURTHER INFORMATION. 

IAU's summer programs in Aix-en-Provence offer students a wide range of liberal arts and fine arts courses offered in English or French. Multiple sessions are available starting in mid-May giving students great flexibility when planning their summers. Homestays and field study tours are included.

A note to students: IAU advises that students do not make any travel arrangements prior to the first week of classes. Field studies and course excursions can be scheduled during weekends and breaks, so IAU recommends not purchasing any tickets or scheduling any travel until after learning of course requirements on-site.


Summer 2020

IAU is pleased to announce its Virtual Experiences Program for Summer 2020 that will take the place of normal on-the-ground summer abroad programs. The 6-week virtual programs will draw on IAU's expertise in experiential-based learning while taking advantage of our wide network of professional contacts in France, Spain, Morocco, and beyond. Students will choose from academic courses, global internships, consulting projects, and social impact practicums/experiential learning projects to customize their summer virtual experience. The Virtual Global Internships have a slightly different calendar (earlier start and end date) than the Virtual Consulting Projects, Virtual Social Impact Practicums, and Virtual Courses to allow for greater flexibility and better time management for students wishing to combine the internship experience with a Consulting Project, Social Impact Practicum, or course.  These overlapping calendars are as follows:
