I wish I had known that we should be patient for anything that we want to do ( buy a train ticket, go to the post office ...) japanese people in general are really slow in everything that they do.

Sophia University is a really good one. Teachers are really good and there are about 200 foreigner students each year so it is easier to meet people from different countries.

Japan is a very good place to travel. I have already been twice to China and I will go in Thailande and Korea in the next few months. Then Japan is a really good experience because the japanese culture is very different from western countries, so it is very interesting to learn how does it work. Finally japan is beautiful, there are a lot to do if you want to travel...

Overall
I wish I had known...
Wish I'd known that accommodation was so randomly assigned. Also wish I'd taken a railpass with me so that I could travel a little cheaper (I was over 25 so the transport situation for me was very expensive). Considered buying a vehicle but not worth it for only 6 months. And wish I'd not worried so much about French consular formalities; turned out that the French dept of immigration were very lax and not terribly worried about my immigrant status (my visa expired while they fluffed around processing my Carte de Sejour!). In fact not one French authority ever examined the inside of my passport when entering/leaving France. Just a cursory glance at the cover to check my nationality! All that after going through hell with the embassy in my own country. Residency status enabled me to get cheaper prices here and there; in hindsight I don't know if it justified the expense though (since I didn't stay longer than 6 months as it turned out).

Go to ESSCA if you are a business, commerce or economics student interested in European politics, and in furthering your interest in the French language (maybe even to begin learning it from scratch).

The international office staff at ESSCA will be forever in your debt. They work quite hard so expect them to maybe take a little while to get back to you in some cases!

Enjoy yourself and don't worry too much about the studying, it's not that difficult to pass exams and you'll never get an opportunity like this again!

don't be shocked by the activities organised by the students themselves, they are not very mature.

By a reduction card for the train (carte 12-25), it helps a lot and makes travelling in general 50% cheaper. Don't worry about reactions you don't understand, learn to accept different cultural behaviour.

Very important thing is to find out all the advantages of beeing a student in that country, i mean discounts for traveling, transport and etc. Also to find out all the social programs which are gonna be organized in nearest future and if possible to take part in all organized social events, because they are always very interesting. Abroad you have to accept many strange things for you, you must integrate into the life of local people. It is a very good experience. Also meeting of so many international student is a big fun, and you are living very interesting life. After such experience you have many friend all over the world.

ESSCA is a good, small and highly reputated business school, ideal for young students studying marketing, finance or Human Resource Management. There are two main associations which organize any kind of activities (sports, partys, etc..) which is perfect as you get to know lots of other ESSCA students.

Angers is situated in the department of "Pays de la Loire" which is known for its beautiful landscape and castles. After visiting some castles, Nantes, the Atlantic coast (eg. La Baule)and the Bretagne are really worth a visit. As Paris is only 1 1/2 hours away (by TGV), the capital of France offers another possibility as well as the Normandie or the South of France. The easiest and best way to travel within France is to travel by TGV; people aged 12-25 can buy a TGV card, which is valid for one year and with which reductions on each journey are granted.
