Project Maine France
Looking to explore study abroad options? Read about Project Maine France, which allows students in the UMaine System to study in a French university. Once a student has applied and is accepted for study in France, the student pays full-time tuition and mandatory fees to his/her home institution before s/he departs. Students who study in France take courses in French language and culture as well as courses in their major field (based on their ability to take courses with regular French students with some linguistic support) and other fields of interest
