Study Abroad - Aix Summer Calendar

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.
