The UniversitiesStudents may take courses in a variety of Parisian universities to satisfy their Princeton course requirements.

To view the list of universities affiliated with CUPA, please view the academic opportunities on their website.
The SettingStudents live and study in the heart of Paris.
Courses:Each student will work with a CUPA Advisor to select a portfolio of courses to fit any academic interest.
You can learn more about course selection on CUPA’s website.
Eligibility:Knowledge of French is required. Students should be prepared to take their coursework in French.
For Princeton approval, participants must have at least a 3.0/ B average for the fall and spring semesters prior to the semester of study abroad.
Grading & Credits:For information regarding credits, grading, and other academic policies, read the Academic Policies on the Study Abroad website.
HousingStudents choose between a homestay and independent living in an apartment in Paris. Living with a carefully selected host family affords students the opportunity to develop close relationships with locals, utilize their French language skills, and be immersed in French culture. Students living independently are responsible for finding their own accommodations and for all associated costs. For more information on housing, please visit the housing section of the CUPA website.
Student LifeThere are many opportunities for you to get out and integrate into the community. Students can take advantage of extracurricular activities, CUPA programming, as well as independent cultural integration projects. Learn more about CUPA’s cultural offerings on their website.
