Program Location

lasalle beauvais 2The “Grandes Ecoles” are unique to France. They were created in the late 18th century in order to offer outstanding scientific education to the country’s future engineers. LaSalle Beauvais, founded in 1854, belongs to this tradition. Studying on our campus will not only give you access to excellence in education; you will also have the opportunity to live in the country that invented “savoir-vivre”, the art of living well! The Picardy region, home of LaSalle Beauvais, is well known for its beautiful villages and its inspiring Gothic cathedrals. Known for its gastronomy, wines and cheeses, France is a large country of amazing geographical variety. You will meet people who are proud of their cultural heritage, their lovely countryside, and their quiet towns and fine restaurants.

Program Reviews:

I needed to go to the doctor my first week in France, and it was easy to use the CISI app on my phone to find doctors in the area. I ended up going to a doctor not listed on the CISI app, but the doctor gave me all of the information I needed to fill out a claim form that I submitted once I returned home.

The excursions were amazing. We were able to go to a baking school, famous kitchens in Paris, a garden in Versailles, and a dairy farm.

This study abroad program teaches individuals how to prepare meals that appeal to people who have lost their appetite or do not know what to eat due to various sicknesses. It teaches you that food is not only just something to fuel a person's body but is a tool that can connect people to one another, to past memories or to their childhood.

Remember that it is a different country and that the teaching style and speed in which tasks are completed are different. A lot of the students on the program were demanding grades and schedules, etc...and were frustrated that the French school system is different than the American school system. I would remind students that a study abroad is an opportunity to observe differences in culture and to respect and embrace a new culture rather than force your culture on another culture.
