Program Description:

Program OverviewOUS Poitiers France

Experience life in an ancient city where twenty centuries of Western civilization are still evident in buildings graced by Roman, Medieval, and Renaissance architecture. Today, Poitiers is a center for education, agriculture, industry and communications. A university town, it boasts a population of 120,000 and offers students a chance to live in a manageably sized city while still being close to the larger metropolitan centers in France.

Program Focus

The Poitiers program facilitates student exchange between the University of Poitiers and students from any of the Oregon University System universities. The program allows students to enroll in either French language courses (at many different levels) or in regular university courses, in many fields of study, taught entirely in French.
