Assas, as it is most commonly known, is the Panthéon-Assas University (Paris II). Assas is France's top university for Law, and well among the world's top universities in the same field. Formerly part of the historical University of Paris - in which it was the Faculty of Law and Economics - Assas became an independent university in 1968, when, during a cultural revolution in Paris, several faculties seceded from their parent university. Each of these newly-founded independent universities was already specialised in a certain field, which led to each being renown for that particular field. Assas shares its main building with Paris II, right in the heart of Paris, so the Parisian life is always an intricate part of students' life. However, it does have other campuses around Paris. Plus, all students under 25 have free entrance to all permanent exhibitions at Parisian museums, as well as reductions for most temporary exhibits and guided visits. To get to Assas, just catch the metro to Cluny - La Sorbonne station, on line 10, or the RER to Luxembourg station. If you prefer the bus, just take one of these buses: 21, 27, 38, 63, 85, 86, 87.

The river, the museums, the cuisine, the Eiffel Tower - studying in Paris is an unforgettable adventure. Not to mention all the croissants, baguettes and pains au chocolat you can have to cure your hangover after a French wine-fuelled night out along the Seine.
In Paris, students get a chance to enrich themselves culturally like nowhere else in the world. Every first Sunday of the month, most state-run museums are free for students. However, you’ll have to practice your French while you’re here, as the Parisians much prefer you to address them in their native language.
You can be sure of one thing: after your semester in Paris, you will have fallen in love with the city of love!
