The St. Lawrence University Program in France is based in Rouen, a city of 125,000 people, 75 miles northwest of Paris. Rouen was ranked the third best medium-sized city in France. It has a rich cultural history with parks, gardens, museums and markets.
The University of Rouen, located in Mont Saint-Aignan - a suburb of Rouen - is a modern university with about 30,000 students. The St. Lawrence Program uses classrooms and offices in the International Relations Office. There are opportunities to socialize with French students; however, French students do not take program classes offered to the fall and spring semester students. Year-long students do directly enroll in University courses during their second semester.
