Test Study Abroad Program
The test study abroad program focuses upon the economy, politics, culture, and history of France and Western Europe.
Spending six weeks in Paris, students will not only have the opportunity to gain credit towards their degrees but also to soak up aspects of Parisian and French culture. The program also includes overnight trips to the Loire Valley, where students will visit several chateaux
, and to Normandy and to Brittany, where you will see some of the beaches used during the D-Day landings of June 6, 1944, together with the world-famous 11th century Bayeux Tapestry commissioned by William the Conqueror and the fortified monastery of Mont St-Michel.
Known as the City of Light,
Paris is one of the world’s great cities, boasting numerous historical, cultural, and artistic sites. You will be able to visit world-renowned locations, including Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. Students can immerse themselves in Paris’s museums, galleries, and neighborhoods while exploring the Latin Quarter, the Marais, Montmartre, the Bastille, Les Invalides, the Champs Elysées, or the designer shops on the rue Faubourg St. Honoré.
There is also lots of opportunity for independent travel. Paris is well served by train and air service, allowing students to travel across Europe on the three-day weekends and during the four-day break between the blocks.

UGA education abroad programs strive to provide reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Areas of disability include, but are not limited to visual, hearing, learning, psychological, medical, and mobility impairments. If you receive disability-related accommodations at UGA or at your home university, or if you anticipate needing accommodations at your overseas site, you will arrange for them with your study abroad program director and the staff in the Disability Resource Center. Examples of accommodations include note taking assistance, extended test time, a quiet testing location, alternative text/media, and accessible housing. Please provide information about your accommodation needs at least 4 weeks prior to departure in order to allow time to arrange for accommodations. Students are asked to disclose disability-related needs prior to the start of the program to help ensure that there are no delays in accommodations and that the student can enjoy the full study abroad experience.
