The Middlebury School in France has been offering undergraduate students the opportunity to study at the Université de Poitiers since fall 2002. This program offers students the opportunity to spend their time abroad in a full-immersion environment within a French institution of higher education.

The University is located in the picturesque city of Poitiers, capital of the Poitou-Charentes region in central France. Home to both medieval quarters and the hyper-modern Futuroscope park, Poitiers is a blend of both ancient and modern. Founded in the fifteenth century, the University enrolls approximately 28,000 students.
