Combine a small number of French-taught program courses with an extensive variety of courses at a number of French universities, including the three Paris Universities of the Sorbonne. In the fall, the program begins with an academic pre-session to prepare students for life in France and academic work in French universities. Credit-bearing internships in a variety of fields are available during winter/spring quarters.
Completion of French 121-3 or 125-3, plus at least one 200-level French course.
Homestays arranged by the program (13 meals/week).
Study abroad program costs vary widely and may be more or less expensive than studying at Northwestern. Review the comparison.
This section outlines some of the billing and financial arrangements for the Junior Year in France program through Sweet Briar College, and is intended as a guide to help you navigate the financial aspects of your study abroad process. You should always refer to your program materials for the most current information and instructions.
After you are accepted to the JYF program, you will be required to pay a deposit directly to Sweet Briar to confirm your place on the program. It is your responsibility to pay this deposit; Northwestern cannot pay or waive deposits for affiliated programs.
Your Northwestern invoice will be issued through CAESAR on the regular quarterly schedule, and will include your JYF program fee and the NU study abroad fee. Refer to your program materials for the most current cost information.
If you use the Northwestern 9PAY plan, you may continue to use 9PAY for your NU-billed study abroad expenses, but you should request a study abroad 9PAY estimate to have your plan set up appropriately.
Because your program fee will be billed through your Northwestern account, you should not receive a separate invoice from Sweet Briar College for your program's tuition or room/board.
Additional fees may apply for certain courses, housing add-ons, field trips, or other optional items related to your program. If applicable, you are responsible for paying these fees directly to Sweet Briar.
