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:
Katharine Michelle Barry, Summer 2017 Participant
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.

Summer 2017 Participant
Learning about the idiosyncrasies of French cuisine from actual chefs exceeds anything you'll ever learn from those generic French cookbooks.

Summer 2017 Participant
I wish we had been able to do more of these!! It was incredible seeing some massive gardens, farmers markets, and baking experiences. These excursions really made the trip worthwhile, as we learned a lot and it was a good way to be immersed in the culture and experience real French day-to-day living. The bread and croissant baking was absolutely incredible for all our pastry friends, while the farmers market and lunch was a good way to show us how farmers make a living and sell their goods. The Versailles kitchen garden was beautiful and it was fun actually being outside and seeing the cool growing techniques and ideas behind the architecture.

I know I want to work more with sustainable agriculture and emphasize the from-farm-to-plate movement. I still want to help people in their journey towards healthier lifestyle and body positivity but I love to cook and I love to plant vegetables. So as of right now, I can do whatever I want by juxtaposing agriculture and cuisine with dietetics. Its new!
