A 'Merveilleux' Gap Year in Paris

I am so glad I found API when I was searching for gap year programs. They are so supportive and helpful throughout the whole process. The staff was happy to answer all my questions and assist me prior to my trip to Paris and the API Paris staff is wonderful! I really appreciate all the measures API takes to make sure each student has a good experience, like the orientation at the beginning of the program and the evaluation(s) of your experience throughout. The API organized excursions are always great and I get to discover things I never would have found on my own, for example the trip to Aix-en-Provence. They also do a great job of making sure my time at my host university goes as smoothly as possible and are able to help me sort out any problems that may come up. Choosing to study in Paris through API's gap year program was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
