IAU's January Term in Aix-en-Provence is designed for students interested in an academic and cultural experience in the Mediterranean region of Southern France. A variety of courses are available to meet each student's academic needs. IAU's exceptional out-of-classroom experiences include homestays, regional field studies and extracurricular activities such as wine tastings and cooking courses. Students have an immersive experience in the local culture during this intensive three-week program.
Many libraries, museums, churches, bookstores, markets, and cafès have earned Aix its reputation as one of France's most engaging cities. A wealth of cinemas, restaurants, discothëques, and sports facilities welcomes Aix's students. With its charm and Mediterranean climate, Aix-en-Provence is one of the most popular and sought after cities in France.

Students participating in the Aix-en-Provence Seminar who also attend IAU for the Spring semester in Aix-en-Provence are encouraged to participate in the Early Start Program the week of January 13-20, 2018. Students who attend both the J-Term and Spring semester can attend the Early Start Program for a reduced fee. The Early Start Program allows students to move in with their French hosts a week before the semester begins, receive French language instruction and participate in local cultural activities!''
