It's not easy to find an appartment in Lyon for short periods (3 months). People who stayed in Lyon longer than 3 months regret not having the opportuninty of living in downtown for a while, but all agree that living in Le Galion (on campus residence) was the best! Read Review

Personal assessment
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? If you stay there just one trimester, this is the best way to meet people. I had a car, so there you don't have any trouble to find a parking because is far away from downtown. People who lived in the center, had to take a bus to go to the faculty (it takes around 35 to 45 minutes depending on the traffic)
Personal comments:
The good points: the residence for the foreigners (Le Galion) has many activities going on inside. Financial aid from the french government (CAF) Wireless connection. There is a cleaning woman that comes every week The bad points: it could get too loud sometimes, specially if you coincide with a group of libaneses. Some students "lost" some belongings (ask for rooms in the first or second floor not in the ground floor)

Was learning French a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my French
How much did you improve your French?

My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
As is the case with many English-speaking students around the world, I have become increasingly annoyed with local students wishing to practise their English on me. Nevertheless, my French has improved considerably.

Personal recommendation:
EM Lyon offers a large choice of courses. They have very professional teachers from whom you can learn a lot!!! If you want to work in France you should absolutly go to this school!! They have great ressources and are very helpful. The teachers are nice to foreign students and not to demanding. If you have the opportunity to go?, GO!!!!


Try not to fall a sleep during the classes. In Sweden we are used to 2 * 45 minutes but here it is 1.30 * 2... But you get used to it! Try to make friends wtih French students, they are really nice and you will have a great time with them. Dont be scared of being laughed at when you speak french. The French likes it when you make an effort to speak their language!! join the wine club and go on the trips the arrange, this is great fun!!!
