Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Study Abroad + Options
The setting of this alpine city is what truly makes it unique. For a panoramic view of the city and surrounding mountains, take a ride on the téléphérique, or cable car, to the Fort de la Bastille. From there, explore the hiking trails and the Grottes (caves) that were used as a defense many centuries ago. With a student population of 60,000, Grenoble is an ideal place to learn French. The slower pace of the city and the friendliness of the inhabitants make it easy to practice the language with locals. The city has several museums, numerous parks and plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities (skiing, hiking, biking). For the avid traveler, Grenoble is an excellent starting point for exploration, situated only three hours from Paris by high-speed train and very close to Switzerland and Italy.
Students may study abroad in Grenoble, France at the Universite Grenoble Alpes or Sciences Po Grenoble.
The Université Grenoble Alpes was established in 1339 and is one of the oldest in Europe. The university is well known for its programs for foreigners learning French and has welcomed foreign students from all over the world for over 100 years.
Students looking to study at one of the France's premier universities would be a great fit for Sciences Po Grenoble. The school is well known to have many faculty members who are working professionals and well known in both France and abroad in their fields. Alumni from Sciences Po have gone into a wide variety of successful careers from the schools' broad curriculum. Founded in 1948, Sciences Po Grenoble is one of the nine Institutes of Political Studies in France placed under the aegis of the National Foundation of Political Science, landing it in the category of Grandes Ecoles.
“I was really happy with the city and I felt that API did everything to help make sure I was able to adjust to living in France. I have done another study abroad program with a different provider, and I am much happier with API and how they prepared us during the orientation."
