JYF in Paris

JYF in Paris (JYF) is the oldest coeducational intercollegiate study abroad program in Paris. Created in 1923 by the University of Delaware, JYF has been administered by Sweet Briar College in Virginia since 1948.

JYF offers semester and year programs, and continues its established tradition of excellence in study abroad, providing a true immersion experience for students for the past 67 years.

All JYF classes are taught in French at one of the universities in Paris. Students are mostly housed with families and have the opportunity to participate in internships, volunteering and excursions organized by the program.
