I would google "study abroad". I have been doing tons of research for my daughter who wants to study abroad next year for fall of her junior year (she is a sophomore at a UC now). There are many great study abroad companies such as ISA, API, AIFS, CIEE, that offer programs in many countries for US students to study for a semester or for a year. Go to their websites and find out how to contact them with your questions. These companies have been great answering emails and phone call questions. I don't see why you can'y study abroad. Many programs are held at American Universities (there is one in Paris and Rome) or at Study Centers run by the study abroad company. Check out some of the above websites and contact the ones that sound promising to you. Also while checking out the American University of Paris and the one in Rome it appears as though one can apply directly to those universities and not necessarily go through a study abroad company. But the companies do make the process easier as far as all the paper work is concerned. Keep in mind a semester abroad runs around $13,000. to $15,000. and a year would be double that.
