About The NRCSA Center

The NRCSA center in Aix-en-Provence is an international language institute which has specialized in teaching French to adult foreigners for more than 35 years. It is registered in France with the Department of Education as a private school of higher education, and was founded by the Swedish foundation Folkuniversitetet which is linked to the University of Stockholm and has branches in Germany, Great Britain, Sweden and Spain. The center is a non-profit-making organization and member of the quality networks SOUFFLE, EAQUALS and IALC.



Aix-en-Provence is a spa town with Roman origins and baptised “Ville d’Eau - Ville d’Art” (city of water - city of art). This picturesque city owes some of its fame to one of its children, the painter Paul Cézanne.

Over the centuries numerous artists have been charmed by the light of this city. Its narrow streets, multicolored facades, its fountains and its markets attract visitors from all over the world. Aix-en-Provence is a young and lively university city with about 30,000 students.

The natural and cultural heritage which surrounds it also offers lots to discover : the historic cities Arles, Avignon and Nîmes, the Lubéron, the gorges of the Verdon and of course the mountain Sainte-Victoire which is the pride of the "Aixois" (people from Aix), the beaches and the ‘Calanques’ (rocky inlets in the Mediterranean) which are 30 minutes away by car.

Average temperature about 11°C/51°F in January and about 28°C/84°F in July.
