Studying abroad at IAU was a life-changing experience for me! As a fine arts major and art history minor, the Marchutz School of Fine Arts was the perfect place to deepen my knowledge of the artistic heritage of the south of France while also taking my drawing and painting abilities to a new, exciting place. Upon my return from studying abroad, I worked in my college's Off Campus Studies Office and then parlayed that into a career in International Education and started working in the field within three weeks of my college graduation. None of this would have been possible without my time in France with the IAU's professors and staff.
I studied at IAU for the semester in spring 2013. It was completely life changing. I was continually impressed with the love and support IAU provides all of their students. From student life to host families to professors, I only have wonderful things to say about this program. I found Aix to be an incredible place to study abroad as I felt I could truly blend in the culture there. It was small enough where I created a community but large enough where I could explore new places each day. I will always be grateful for my time in Aix and my semester abroad at IAU.
IAU was an incredible opportunity for me! I studied for a full academic year in both the School of Humanities and the Marchutz School of Fine Arts, and it was absolutely life-changing. IAU and my experience in Aix opened my eyes to a different culture, language, and way of life. I always felt supported by the tight-knit community of IAU, and enjoyed greatly my time spent in courses, on field studies, wandering the streets of Aix, speaking French, and just living in the beautiful and lively town of Aix. The professors at IAU were among the best I ever had, and the courses offered really took advantage of the location of the school so that we could learn outside the classroom as much as possible. I highly recommend IAU to anyone looking for a truly special study abroad experience.
