Make sure to talk with your home university about course approval and get additional classes approved before you go abroad. For example, if you are taking 4 classes abroad, we recommend getting 8 approved. This gives you some flexibility in setting up your class schedule. Think about courses required for your major, but also courses that fulfill your elective requirements.

2-day Trip to Rennes and Mont-Saint-Michel
Spend a day in the amazing city of Rennes whose history goes back more than 2,000 years and which is recently named by L’Express as “the most livable city in France”. On the following day, we will go to the Mont-Saint-Michel, a magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery. One of Europe’s major pilgrimage destinations for centuries, this holy mount is one of the most unforgettable and stunning sights in Europe, set in the bay where the regions of Normandy and Brittany merge.
3-Day Trip to Côte d’Azur
Surrounded by Riviera neighbors like aristocratic Monaco, red-carpet Cannes and resort town Saint-Tropez, Nice will seduce you by the beauty of its neighborhoods, fabulous markets, an enticing old town, glorious architecture and internationally renowned gastronomy. We will explore its most important monuments, churches, gardens and the footpaths that link the surrounding hillside to the old town. During this three-day trip, we will also explore the breathtaking Monaco and visit other pearls of the French Riviera such as Cannes or Antibes.
Boat Cruise on the Canal Saint Martin
A cruise from the Parc de la Villette to the Musée d’Orsay will allow us to experience the atmosphere of “Parisians’ Paris.” This cruise, commented by a guide, combines not only some of the landmarks of the City of Lights, but also some more secret sides of Paris. It will take us through four double locks with swirling waters and two swing bridges. We will share the pleasure of the walkers strolling along the banks of the Canal Saint Martin lined with pretty boutiques and charming cafés and slide under the mysterious and spectacular vault of the Bastille.
Your Support Staff
Travel Tip: We love what we do and want to talk to you! The Global Advising Center is here to help you decide on a program, and complete the Online Application. From the moment you first hear from us be it through a phone call, email or personal visit, you will find that our passion for international education is contagious. We’re ready to launch you abroad.
Travel Tip: Expect the unexpected! Sometimes culture shock is stronger in countries where you expect things to be more similar to your home country and environment. Traveling abroad is an excellent way to learn more about your own culture, habits, style, and adaptability.
Travel Tip: Travel is not only, as Mark Twain said, fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. It is also the best possible recipe for happiness, so explore, dream and discover.
