Personal recommendation
The quality if courses could be better. But the missions (workplacements) are quite interesting. It is a small university. But for international students this could be an advantage because it is easy to get to know people. The atmosphere was very friendly! The administration of this school is quite uncomplicated.

Final comments
It is very different from german universities concerning the courses. There was a lot more of practice than in Germany. Sometimes too much. But it was a very good experience for my career, especially the missions. All in all I had a lot of fun during this year. The French students were very friendly and open to the international students.
