I wish I had known...
I wish I had known how cold it would be in January when I arrived! Also, I wish someone had warned me how long it would take to get my residence permit. I lined up for hours in the cold outside the administrative building only to find that they had misplaced some of my documents. But it only happened to a few of us so maybe it was my bad luck!
In my opinion:
Most people loved it.

Personal recommendation:
IESEG is a great school for students who are looking to take international studies. The courses are very internationally focused. Many of them will focus on doing business abroad, or compare different cultures and how they do business differently. As well, if you are looking to have fun, IESEG is known to be a "party" school with all their open bars, and socials, including the Nuit Prestige Gala. I had a great time. I met many friends from all over the world, and not all, but some of the French students were very hospitable and helpful.



FINAL COMMENTS

Lille is a great place to study. It's small enough so that you can get almost anywhere by foot, but since it's a University town, there are many places to go out and have fun. As well, from Lille, it's easy to travel around Europe as there are direct train routes to London and Paris.

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.



FINAL COMMENTS

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.

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

FINAL COMMENTS

Make sure you get a Carte 12-25 from SNCF (Train company) if you come here. It will help you save quite a lot of money. Try to get a debit card that has a smart chip in it, it makes things more convenient. There are a lot of machines that will not except a debit/credit card with just a magnetic strip.
