The main reason is the next one: if you are living in a new place, you try to know everything. Besides the cost of life in France is more expensive than in Spain.

Personal comments
I'm coming here to make the final project degree. It is a good idea to ask for doing it in a factory instead of the university. You could know the general work method in France.

Pubs and some discos. If you prefer a quiet atmosphere, you can choose some good cafes. Pubs close about 1AM but discos close later. Anyway too soon for me ;(

5.0/5
Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Because of the facilities of doing whatever you need. You have a tramway very near from the residence and only takes you 10 minutes to arrive to the centre of the town. Besides, the most of students are in the campus.

Quite good. There are two main types of residence: traditional ones, cheapest but with no much quality of life; and new residences, with a cost over 300Euros per month with your own toilet, shower and fridge ... Really comfortable and not expensive. Besides, the French Government helps the foreign students with the cost of the residence (about 100Euros) so it becomes even cheapest.
