I wish I had known...
Due to the location of the halls of residence (10 minute train journey from the university and 40 minutes from central Paris) if a train or tube strike was taking place I was often stranded in the halls of residence.

Personal recommendation
The staff and local students are very welcoming and strive to ensure that exchange students have a fulfilling and rewarding experience. There are plenty of sporting and social activities organised by the BDE (student union), and obviously the location being in Paris was a major bonus as I fully explored the city.

Final comments
The year in Paris was without doubt the best year of my life an I can safely say the same for the vast majority of other exchange students on the ERASMUS exchange. The extra money added onto the student loan for the year and the ERASMUS grant enable travel around Europe. I recommend going Interrailing around Europe during the half term breaks and booking the tickets earlier saves a lot of money.

Personal recommendation
Regarding the quality of my studies I would recommand it to everybody. The equipment of ESSEC is very good and there are a lot of student association. The sport facilities are excellent (there is nearly no sport unpossible) and the students pub Foy's is a nice place to have a pint or two. The school is the top business school in France and has an important alumni network. Over 30% of students are from foreign countries and therefore the athmospere is very international.

If using Thalys ask for a "Mini" price. This means you pay less but you have to fix when you want to return in advance. No possibility to change traveling hour.

How difficult (impossible) it would be to get a job next to studying in France. They all want you to work fulltime, whereas a student can simply not spend 40 hours working, and as much studying.

Save up beforehand, and simply go with the flow. Go to the parties, and enjoy the social life as well as studying.

Have fun but be careful and never stop paying attention, CROUS restaurant is cheap and the food is good, book your travel tickets in advance and metro tickets in packs of 10
