About CUPA

With over 50 years of experience as an independent study-abroad program in Paris, CUPA has a long tradition in international education.

We pride ourselves on this solid background, but the real strength of our program is our constant desire to innovate and adapt our offerings to the evolving needs of our students. Choosing CUPA means choosing a program that recognizes that each participant has a unique point of view. While some students thrive from being highly independent, others prefer a structured approach to new experiences. We understand these differences and provide students with the level of freedom best suited to their needs. This highly individualized approach is possible because we are committed to academic excellence and the lifelong pursuit of learning.
