Course recommendations
The courses are in French, hence it would be a good idea to get an idea of the language before coming to INSA. The courses are well taught with an eye on engineering applications. The exams are also prepared with the same perspective. The courses deal with a wide vareity of topics and for exchange students, who can choose from any department and any year, it offers a wide vareity of options to choose one's interest.

Personal comments
I would suggest to pay attention in class and to be up to date with what is going on in the course. The exams are not challenging, but expect an understanding of the subject. Regular study was more effective then last day preparations especially in the department of Biochemisty.

Course recommendations
The system of studies at INSA-Lyon is very different from the one we have in Lithuania, so the best choice would be to get to know as much as possible about the schedule of the lectures which was changing all the time. Also exchange sstudents should communicate with teachers more, so they'll have less problems in passing the exams which are quite difficult for non-French speaking students.

I think local students should help the exchange students more, they should communicate more between each other. But this is for students to choose...

Course recommendations
Ok, if you are in a department that doesn't involve memorizing text please don't go there! Try to take liberal art classes, you'll help yourself a great deal. Professors are bad teachers as far as I know in the Civil engineering department. Complaints have come from Computer science, Mechanical engineering. They are more interested in their research. There are no office hours (ei, French student goes to professor's office to ask an exam question. His comment as she walks in the door: "What are you doing here? I don't have time for you. Get out". Please tell me who says that!!! Plenty of other examples come to mind but they wont fit here. They are condescending towards international students. If you can take spanish, french, sport, sociology don't do any science if your grades have to transfer. You'll regret it all of your life!

Academic life is a competition. No one helps each other unless they are in the same group which they will be for 3 years of their lives. Groups dont interact. Improvements? It's France! You can't tell them what to do. They see it as americanizing them. If they works for them let them be and see how they grow on the international market. My suggestion though would be to give a recycling modern 21st century course to their professors. God they need it! If academia was the only thing I experienced there, I WOULD NEVER SET MY FOOD THERE AGAIN and keep in mind that I passed all of my classes and some with high grades.

I did my project end of studies, and I did it with another foreigner student because French students had to do it the following term, so I missed working with them.
