Wellesley-in-Aix is located in Aix-en-Provence a lively, charming city of 145,000 inhabitants located in southern France within easy distance of the Mediterranean coast and France's second largest metropolis, Marseille. Home to Aix-Marseille University (AMU), the largest public university in France, Aix has a significant student population, including numerous international students enrolled at AMU and the Institute of Political Science also know as Sciences Po.
Wellesley-in-Aix is an immersion program designed for students in the humanities and social sciences with solid French skills who wish to increase their mastery of the language and knowledge of French culture via direct enrollment in the French university system and a homestay option. All courses are in French, and students are expected to communicate in French with WIA staff and other participants. There is a four-week fall pre-session in Paris in French literature and contemporary culture, followed by courses in the regular curriculum at the University of Provence. In the spring the pre-session lasts only one week.
