Personal comments
the university has many international students therefore the language which is spoken between us is that. All my course was in french so we had to speak and listen to french with regards to lectures, group work, seminars and communicating to staff. The staff in charge of international students can speak fluent english which helps when there is difficulty expressing what you need to know.

Personal spending habits
nice is very expensive to live, eat and socialise as it is the french riviera. However it is not as bad as everyone seems to think it is but even the basics of fruit and vegetables prove more costly than at home.

Academic
Course recommendations
The way that the courses are graded is good as it is composed of three marks, coursework, exam and control continue which is work done in class evry week. In addition there is alot of oral presentations to do so its not all based on the final exam. The courses are quite short in relation to english modules and they dont occur every week, the timetable changes weekly.

Personal recommendation
the school is very small so you ghet to know most people quite quickly. it has a vast range of subjects that you can choose to study in english or french. you will get to meet so many international students therefore experiencing lots of cultures in addition to the french.

Final comments
if you intend to go to Nice try and find accommodation before coming otherwise arrive a good week before you start your course so that you have time to search for nice accommodation rather than having to put up with the something as it is better than not having antwhere else to live.

Personal comments
I spent alot of time at Waynes and Thors which are international bars which have live bands on every night, i also spent alot of time in french bars such as zoom, la suite, les trois diabalos, ghost which are located in the old town (where most of the bars, clubs and restaurants are). Nice is very expensive to go out but its so cosmopolitan and vibrant so everone should find something that they will enjoy as there is endless choice of where to go. With regards to clubs i went to the Dizzy club which is down by the port, quite funky and plays good music- R n B, house and hip hop.In addition there is Saramanga which is on the Promenade des Anglais which again plays cool music and is free for girls to get into. there is others aswell such as Escalier and Checkpoint but these in my opinion were not as good.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Attending l'Edhec there is no other choice but to find accommodation yourself as it is a private school rather than a university. I would choose to reside in an appartment or flat as it gives you freedom to do what you like and it is what i am used to doing.

Personal comments
The school does not have any accommodation as one it is too small and two most of the students commute, therefore there is no need to provide accommodation. Finding housing in Nice is difficult due to the demand from students and professionals alike. If you do find housing you often do not get very much for your money especially if you want to live right in the centre. My school was situated a 30 min bus journey from nice centre, i choose to live in the old part as it is where all the shops are etc and if you want to go out at night it is easier to get home. However being located in the centre means that accommodation is generally smaller, more expensive and not to such a high standard as it is nearer the university and airport.
