Academic Year 2018 Participant
The program in Angers is the gold standard of study abroad experiences. There are numerous educational and cultural opportunities that are made available by the university, but they also leave you ample time to go out and explore France and Europe on your as well. It is without question a worthwhile experience that French majors and minors at KU should experience. I feel that to get the most benefit out of it, one should go after they have a fair amount of French knowledge, but you learn at such an accelerated pace that you honestly can go at any point in your KU career.

Angers is not a huge town and is very easy to maneuver. Also, you aren't drowning in homework every single night because they want you to experience truly living in France.

My favorite part of the program was definitely living with my host mom. She didn't speak more that 4 or 5 words of English, but she loved to talk, so my French improved dramatically. In addition, she is quite an incredible lady and had a lifetime's worth of experiences to share.
