Personal recommendation
The choice of the courses is very flexible, you can choose intensive courses within International Managemnet Programme, that last one week (usually-pesentation, essey, exam) and you can follow French regular courses (whole semester). The social life is really well organised, a lot of events, group going-outs and so on.Local Frecnch people very friendly.

Final comments
Costs of living for students from Eastern Europe are very high. Try to apply for carte de sejour as soon as possible cause you need it to receive financial support to your accomodation cost from French government (so-called CAF. Travel - you can travel within the depratment Nord Pas de Calais with reduction card -Grand Ter. International travels- Eurolines or Rayanair

Expenses
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
none
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
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.

Personal comments
Granted, I did not succeed the way I wanted to, partly because everyone there spoke English to some degree. I'd say, immerse yourself in the language by whatever means you can if you want to learn.

Housing
Type of housing: a student residence
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: the same residence
Why?
It was small compared to the price but it was very close to school and we had good contact with other students (French+ exchange).

Personal comments
Latina Café, Snooker Palace, Highlander, and Café Oz were popular choices for bars among the international students at IESEG. Le Faso is a great African restaurant in Vieux Lille. And Flam's and 400 Coups are some pretty good restaurants on Rue de Pas near Grand Place.
