Overall
I wish I had known...
Language skills? I didn't learn anything in France that I didn't know before. Just learned that my accent was funny. Studies? I came back more stupid than I was when I left. All of my peers are more advanced and sharp than I am after a year of not being able to ask question and brainstorm because professors are not there to interact. You are told what to do, your personal thinking doesnt go into it. Everyone ends up with the same project and lab report because they copy it from the students from previous year that did the same the year before and so on and so on.... someone say PERJURISM?!?!

Personal recommendation
This stricktly applies to international student experience. Not more, not academic. Seperate the two in your mind and you'll have less of a shock when you get there.

Travel tips... save up, go away on breaks. Dont stay on that dead miserable campus and town. Travel is relatively cheap if you take it one step at a time and plan accordingly. Europe is quite open and with a French visa you can go almost everywhere. Italy, Germany, Belgium, Amsterdam, Portugal, Spain, France.... I've been in major places on 1 to 2 weeks break on a nearly 1000 dollar budget for each trip.

Des élèves brillants, mais des enseignants-cherchercheurs plus chercheurs qu'enseignants

INSA Lyon
4.0/5
Overall
Comme énoncé dans le titre il est parfois difficile de progresser sur certaines notions notions tant certains professeurs peuvent se montrer peu concernés voire hautains vis-à-vis de leurs étudiants pourtant triés sur le volet; ce n'est heureusement pas le cas de tout le corps enseignant, et de plus, rien que les étudiants ne peuvent surmonter.

Personal comments
Housing at that university for people coming from my school definetely suck. The french institution try to maximize their money making by giving the best housings to students that would pay them cash directly therefore I couldn't get a better one because I wasnt going to pay them since I am guaranteed any housing I want because the student that replaced me at my school can get any one he wants. Housing could have been better. I had a fridge in my room but I don't care about that because I am used to not having one but internet was important to me because that was my only link to the U.S. and finding internships and job for the summer but I didn't get that. Therefore I ended up coming back and not being able to work, not even in a supermarket!

I don't play sports so I'll keep my opinion to myself. The one thing I'll say is that French people are greedy. The guy that replaced me had the choice of any sport he wanted on my 40,000 dollar tuition without paying, but I in return had to pay a yearly fee to play table tennis, money they will not reimburse me. Participate in all the free activities, they are fun especially when you have international friends. Beaujolais, Nuits des Lumieres, Short film festival, 24 Hours etc.... My social life was great and no thanks to the french may I add. French students get wasted at 9pm and go to bed or if they are guys they start dancing with each other in the club and forget that there are girls. That's their idea of fun.
