Course recommendations
The International Management Program (IMP) courses are taught in English and some of them are interesting, but be forewarned that although they only last a week, each class is up to 4 hours a day. And the workload is pretty heavy. For example, you may have homework everyday, and a presentation and final exam at the end of the week. One of my favourite classes, taught in French, was a 3 day seminar called Management d'équipe, which was pretty much a team-building class and it really gives you the chance to interact with everyone in the class.

Personal comments
I didn't like how the course schedules were constantly changing. A class could be cancelled a day before with very little notice. You always have to be checking the boards to see if your class is still going to happen, and where and when it will take place.

Personal spending habits
I took many trips and spent a lot in travel. I also went out more in France than I did when I was at home. But I did save money by cooking for myself rather than eating out at cafeterias and restaurants. But I found that everyday shopping (groceries, clothes, music, etc.) was generally more expensive in France than in Canada.

Personal comments
If you study in France for more than 3 months, you may be eligible to apply for lodging assistance through CAF (Caisse d'Allocation Familiales), but you must have a residence permit. As for travelling, if you're lucky, you may catch seat sales on Ryanair or Easyjet, two low cost internet airline companies, and save tons of money on airfare.

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 spending habits
Lille is less than three hours away from several metropolitan cities: Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Luxemborg. There are also numerous charming villages that are worthy of exploration as well. Travelling on the train is inexpensive with the carte 12-25. This is different from the U.s. where everything is so spread out and traveling is quite expensive.
