Personal recommendation
It was a good experience. IESEG is really a school with an opennes to international students and does a lot to accomodate you. But remember, if you want to learn French, dive in and take courses in French.

Lille is a great student city in itself but even better is its central location that allows to pick up and travel very easily, with easy access to Paris and Brussels airports.

Expenses
Main source of funding:
Personal savings
Other sources of funding:
Family
Government assistance
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
I didn't own a cell phone while on exchange, so I didn't spend on that. I shared a room, so that worked out a lot cheaper than it would've been otherwise. Nightlife, you walk everywhere so no need for taxis, and there's never any cover which is a plus. And I took the opportunity to travel more often that I do at home, and that was expensive considering I was working in Cdn dollars.

If you can and you're willing, share a room! This will obviously cut your res expenses in half.

Personal comments
I wasn't too confident to begin with, but speaking French definitely became easier and the fact that local French students were willing to mix with us meant that we spoke a lot of French outside of class too, giving us the opportunity to get more fluent and learn some slang too!

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I enjoy having my own personal space where I can live independently. When using university housing, it is difficult to have out-of-town guests stays with you. Having people over for dinner can be quite confining.

Excellent night out in Café Oz which is especially good if your french is a little rusty. Nice little creperie on Rue de Bethune which also has a cheap and cheerful little b&b. But for the main student nightlife go down Rue Massena/Rue Solférino - that's where it all happens!
