The multi-dimensional bachelor’s degree

4.0/5
Overall
To start off with the campus: there isn’t one! Only buildings spread across the most beautiful city in the world. What else? 

Now a little bit about the courses: translation, economics, law, marketing, management, civilisation history, and french litterature are all part of the program. 

If you don’t have a clue on your future career (like myself a few years ago) and have a passion for languages and discovering cultures, do not hesitate! Check out the bachelor’s brochure (Licence LÉA - Langues Étrangères Appliquées) on the Sorbonne- Paris IV website.

I wish i had known that the teaching style would be very different than at my home university. I also wish that i had known that I was going to be at a different location than the French Sorbonne students.

I really enjoyed my semester abroad and I wish that I would had been able to stay for a year instead of 1 semester. For students that are going abroad, remember to smile, be flexible and polite.

Personal spending habits
In the US travel is expensive : airlines might offer reasonable rates, but the time you are away from work and studies is a factor in how "expensive" and inconvenient regular travel becomes. In France I found I could take a trip every month or so with the train, student discounts were abound, and hostels or budget traveling were simply more convenient to look in to. The telephone situation, well, if you buy a cell phone and use it without an "abonnement" then you're pretty much going to spend a lot of money.

Personal comments
Most things in Paris of cultural value are free to students. See if the Sorbonne can't hook you up with a "histoire de l'art" student card (should be easy if you follow the conference) so that you can get into most private museums for free. Movies are cheap, alcohol is cheap, everything is pretty inexpensive, and if you are out of cash, just walk around. If you plan to be there a year, make sure to get an Imagine R card for the subway.

I wish I'd known more French! And also that it's so easy to travel within Europe...I would have saved more money for train passes!

Don't travel alone at night. Ignore the rude comments from men. Bring ten times more money than you think will be sufficient. Try everything once! Just be careful.

It is a good school, but very unorganized. But no worries, French students do not know anymore than you do, they are just more used to the system.

Relax and don't be afraid to ask for help even though it might seem as though no one wants to help. And have fun!!!
