Program Description:
Now’s your time to shine in the South of France. Study Internship in Aix-en-Provence gives you a chance to elevate your studies and hone in on your passions. While you live and study in the charming city of Aix-en-Provence (“Aix,” as the locals call it), you’ll also intern at a local business. Your internship will be tailored to your career goals and interests, and you’re encouraged to speak French at “work.” Home will be with a local family who will welcome you to Aix. In every moment of your day, you’ll be completely immersed in the French language and culture.

Living in southern France - Is it the climate, the people, the scenery, the history, or the food that people rave the most about here? Whatever your delights, you're sure to feel more than at home in Aix-en-Provence and the Provence region. Rolling fields of lavender, Roman ruins and the beautiful Mediterranean Sea are just some of the sights you'll regularly experience here.

A wide variety of internship placements available - Interested in learning about French business practices? Want to try your hand at journalism or fashion design? Use this opportunity to build on existing skills or learn something new! All the while, enjoy the company of and immersion with your French co-workers. Your French vocabulary will thank you too!

An active social and recreational setting - Our program base has something going on every day of the week. Between excursions, movie nights, service opportunities and interest groups, you just might find some time to stroll through the quaint streets of Aix from time to time...  

A perfect city for study and intern abroad - Aix-en-Provence has all the culture and history you'll want to soak up as part of your personal and academic endeavors, yet it's big enough to offer a great range of industries, giving you a wide range of internships to choose from. It's small enough that you can get to know it very intimately and explore its entirety in a semester, but it's big enough to offer plenty of places to eat, shop, and explore.

Perfect opportunity to practice your French skills – From living in a local homestay with a French host, to speaking French every day at your internship, to volunteering at a local soup kitchen or participating in a local sports club, the Study Internship in Aix en Provence program is designed to immerse you completely in the French language and give you a taste of what living in France is all about!
