I know most students have aid through the school, but I know very few with scholarships. Living in Paris is very expensive, so if you really want to come here be prepared. I am sure if you contact the university, though, they might be able to put you in touch with someone to help you figure everything out. Hope this helps! :)
It has the same admission percentage as DePaul University in Chicago. In terms of Academics, it's hard to say. No university is the same. AUP is concerned with sending international students into the world so that they can make a difference. So with that in mind, I would say that it is similar to Arcadia University or NYU in that it aims to educate its students to face their careers on an international level. That's why it's located in Paris - the heart of mainland Europe.
I was admitted for Fall 2013 so I know a bit about it.
Thank you! That was very informative =)
What would you like to know? :)
How is the computer science program, and the academics in general?:)
Well, I don't know too much about there computer science program but AUP is generally known for their global communications major and have many internship opportunities! (especially in fashion and PR work) I myself am going to be a International and Comparative Politics major, so I know more about those programs than computer science unfortunately :( sorry, but if you would like to know anything else feel free to ask and I will try to answer! :D
do they have a pre-law program?
They have a minor in international law, and masters in public policy and international law. So if you wanted to do pre law I would create a self designed major, or do international and comparative politics with maybe a concentration in human rights or international law. Either way it would be a specialization/concentration on the international side.
How's the nightlife?
haha its Paris!! ;) its always happening' but the best night life is in the 11 arrondissement. Plus its an area where a lot of young people live. A bit far from the school though (by far I mean a 20 minute metro ride and maybe 10-15 minute walk from the station) But if you want a nightlife with people who speak english, Irish pubs are all over the place and are very fun! haha Or at least I enjoy them. Sometimes its just nice to be around people who speak the same language, that is if you aren't already fluent in french. But nightlife definitely exists in Paris, just not in the same arrondissement as the school. :)

The American University of Paris has a lot of amazing, awesome professors—or at least enough to outweigh the dull ones. Almost any University student can spring into a story about one really cool professor who was too zany for words. On the flip side, there are always the "horror stories" floating around about certain professors who only went into teaching to make students' lives miserable. It really depends on personal experience that comes with actually taking their classes. One day, someone might discover that professors have different moods for different semesters or that they really do have a dartboard with their most troublesome student's photo ID attached to it.
For the most part, the workload of AUP is manageable, even though procrastination is a trait shared by most of the University (some professors included). There are always some majors that take a more traditional standpoint, while others can be really interesting and innovative. One thing's for sure: when all the classes start piling on work, it is always broadcast in Facebook statuses as ". . .working" and "four hours later and still working" until it ends up as "two days without sleep—yay caffeine!"
