About WICE

  • A welcoming and supportive environment
  • Opportunities to acquire and maintain marketable skills through Paris classes and volunteer activities
  • Programs and resources to ease the transition into life in France

A Bit of History

WICE was founded in 1978 by a small group of expats to meet the intellectual, professional, and self-development needs of the English-speaking community of Paris.
Originally affiliated with the American University of Paris, WICE grew quickly, welcoming men and women including permanent residents and short-term visitors to Paris.
