Personal recommendation
It was not my first experience abroad, but it was really amazing. In the beginning, it is not really easy to adapt to the life in Rouen which is a little bit unusual for people coming from cities with millions of habitants, but you get very quick integrated through parties and different associations in the campus life. And what is concerned about the academic life, well, sometimes there should be some improvements to make, but personally I have gained a lot of experience, some subjects were really new for me, and writing dossiers of around 40 pages in a foreign language was a really exciting and important challenge especially for my future business life.

I haven´t really talked in the previous sections about some travel opportunities but Rouen has plenty of them. It is situated only 100 km far away from Paris but the Normandy region has some beuatiful places to offer. First of all, you should plan to visit the famous Mont St.Michel Abbey ( the excursion will be organised by the ESC Rouen), moreover the North coast of Normandy with its beautiful cliffs and rocks ( cities: Etretat, Fecamp and Dieppe) is so lovely, and for fans of art and culture I can really recommend to visit the Museum of Claude Monnet and his garden in Giverny only 55 km far away from Rouen.

Go to Rouen. If you're going on exchange as an undergraduate student, you'll probably have a final year of difficult work ahead of you back home when you finish abroad. So why not effectively take a year away from study. Learn a language, do the minimal amount of work necessary and still pass. Enjoy life with many foreigners- learn about different cultures and pull a few birds- it's a handy number, honestly. And if you live to party, even better. You can take the most ridiculous courses that your host institution will validate. What more can you ask for?

Buy a 12-25 train card. Integrate with the locals. Get out as often as possible. Travel. Slag off the Canadians for being American. Say hello to the barmen in O'Kallaghan's for me.

They say it's a student town but quite honeslty, other than the socials organized by the "student union" not much goes on. That said, the socials are fun and frequent.

That the médiathèque resources be available off campus (I do know that this will change in the years to come).

If you want to live off campus, it is best to start early and prefer furnished to non-furnished. I havent been here long enough to say much else. For the British: there is a Ryanair route between Reims and London Stanstead.

My housing. Because I had to book when I arrived to my destination. Before arriving it was difficult to arrange an accommodation place.

It is a really serious university, very well organised, with a lot of social live and with plenty of extra-academic activities to do.

It's a good place to go, but it wasn't that good academically. I learned much more out of the classroom.

Bring as much as you can from home, but remember to leave some room - you'll be bringing more back. See tips on phone and travel above. It rains literally every day. Bring an umbrella. On the other hand, it doesn't get cold in the winter, usually +5, +10 degrees C. If you get homesick, know that you're not alone and it WILL pass. And don't sit alone in your room. Get out and talk to people, especially the French and other exchange students. Above all, be open-minded and prepared that things work differently than at home! Then everything will work out and you'll have a great exchange experience!

Professionalisation. Increase quality of some courses and of easy exams. Let students study themselve instead of presenting everything in class.

The ESC Reims is not a bad school and a lot of effort is made to offer quality courses. Nevertheless, there is no study mentality present at all. Students arrive late (typically French) and prefer to do as less as possible. This is fed by the French system of sitting down, taking notes and reproducing at the exam. Although this can be quite handy or easy for a foreign student, it gets boring now and then. Reims is a nice city, only when you make it nice. That means undertaking things and making tours in its surroundings. Don't expect to much of the nightlife: prices are high and pubs close early, while the French do not really have the 'going out' mentality. They prefer to give small parties at home, or go to parties arranged by school.
