Designed for students at an advanced level of French, the C.V. Starr-Middlebury School in France provides opportunities to experience French culture in Poitiers, a quintessential French town with a srong university and student culture.

Conveniently located between Paris and Bordeaux- only an hour and a half by TGV (Train de grand vitesse) from either- the cobblestone city of Poitiers is the capital of the Poitou-Charentes region, close to La Rochelle and Ile de Ré, and beyond the major tourist attractions of the Loire valley. Once the haunting ground of Eleanor of Aquitaine, and home to both medieval cloisters and the ultra modern Futuroscope park, Poitiers is a blend of the ancient and contemporary.

The School in France has been offering undergraduate students the opportunity to study at the Université de Poitiers since fall 2002. Founded in the fifteenth century, the University of Poitiers enrolls approximately 28,000 students who comprise one quarter of the city's population. Students can enroll in virtually all disciplines in Poitiers, including science and mathematics. The main campus is located a mere 20 minutes by bus from the picturesque city center. This program offers students the opportunity to spend their time abroad in a full-immersion environment within a French institution of higher education.
