ENROLLMENT IS STILL POSSIBLE FOR SUMMER PROGRAMS & FALL SEMESTER 2019! 

Now that the Fall semester is in full swing, come see what's happening at MICEFA in Paris!  Meet the new MICEFA Program Assistant Véronique and our new Secretary General Antonia, learn about one of MICEFA's member universities and about the Intensive Language Session!
MICEFA INTENSIVE SESSION
 
Students participating in a semester or year abroad through the MICEFA take part in a 3-week Intensive French Language & Culture Session before they begin their classes.  During this session students will receive a crash-course in French language to boost their abilities and help them to prepare for their time at their host university.  MICEFA then proposes cultural activities around the city to help students discover their new home!  During this time students are advised by MICEFA staff to help them get ready for their adventure abroad.  
FOCUS ON "SCIENCES POLITIQUES" OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CERGY PONTOISE
Many MICEFA exchange students are interested in studying at one of the famous "Science Politiques" instituts in France during their time abroad.  Sciences Po St Germain, a joint venture between two of our partner universities, Cergy Pontoise and Versailles St Quentin, offers courses in international relations and political science in both French and English.  Located in the beautiful and historic city of Saint Germain-en-Laye just outside of Paris, this institute offers an idyllic setting to learn and debate.  Students will take classes with French students in small groups to promote learning and exchanges.  
ANTONIA RIGAUD - SECRETARY GENERAL
Antonia Rigaud was elected Secretary General of MICEFA in spring 2019. She is an associate professor of American studies at Université Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3. Her research focuses on art and politics in the United States from the early 20th century to the present. She has worked for the cultural services of the French Embassy in the United States, where she was in charge of France’s higher education cooperation in the American Southwest.
VÉRONIQUE PHI - PROGRAM ASSISTANT

We are pleased to present our new Program Assistant - Véronique PHI.  Véronique comes to the MICEFA with a passionate interest in international education.  Having lived abroad herself in the United States, she understands what it is like to be abroad!  Véronique is here to help MICEFA exchange students set up their day-to-day life here in Paris from housing, to bank accounts to part-time jobs and advice she is here to help!  
MICEFA PROGRAM DATE CHANGES
To make the MICEFA more accessible to North American students we have opted to align with our partner university schedules. The official ends of the Fall semester will be mid-January with most student being able to return home before the winter vacation.  The Spring semester will now officially end mid-June with many students leaving before the end of May.  If you have questions about semester dates, please contact info@micefa.org
