Study Abroad in France
France is the most expansive country in the European Union and benefits from a wide variety of landscapes. Located on Europe’s western side, the metropolitan territory has over 3,400 miles (5 500 km) of coastline stretching from the North Sea and along the Channel to the Atlantic Ocean in the west and along the Mediterranean in the south. Several islands line the coasts, the largest of which is Corsica located in the Mediterranean.
The large mountain ranges are distributed in the east and the south while 4 great river basins cross the country; the Seine in the north, the Loire and the Garonne in the west, and the Rhône between Switzerland and the Mediterranean.
France shares its borders with Belgium and Luxembourg in the north, Germany, Switzerland and Italy in the east and with Spain in the south.
