ABOUT THE PROGRAM


Strasbourg is an ideal location to study abroad. The city truly sits in the heart of Europe, right on the German border, with easy access to Switzerland, Italy, and Belgium. Strasbourg merges the old and new with its modern tramway set against the backdrop of cathedrals and an historic city center. With the amenities of a large city and manageability of a small city, Strasbourg features a large network of bicycle paths and is known for its friendly atmosphere. As a cultural, intellectual and gastronomic center, the city attracts large numbers of international students.
