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.

Final comments
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.

Une école généraliste
Adrien T
France, Graduate
Engineering, Mechanical
Overall
L'INSA Lyon est une bonne école dans son ensemble. Elle offre aussi de bonnes opportunité pour les études à l'étranger, avec tous ses partenariats.
C'est une école essentiellement axée généraliste, ce qui permet d'être à l'aise dans tous les domaines. Attention toutefois, le manque de spécialisation peut être un problème pour ceux qui cherche des débouchés dans un secteur précis.
Question vie périscolaire, c'est sûrement une des meilleures!

Des élèves brillants, mais des enseignants-cherchercheurs plus chercheurs qu'enseignants
Jordan G
Poland, Graduate
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.

Student unions are what makes this school great
Charlotte A
France, Graduate
Engineering, Technology
Overall
The school isn't perfect, but they give the students a lot a freedom to make their own projects, and the student unions are a huge thing : we have a performance hall and a festival entirely managed by the students for instance.
The school also has a very good reputation in France.
