Personal spending habits
After all the i's were dotted and the whatnot, I spent roughly 14,000-16000 for the ten month period which included everything from my flight etc. It was expensive not doubt, but in reality I could have avoided a few thousand. Myself, like many other students spent an exuberant amount of money the first two months going out and wasting money on needless activities because we were unfamiliar with the system in France. Had I known what I know now I am certian that I could have lived on substantially less. ALso realize that there are financial aid for students in France like the CAF that would have aided in the financial burden. In short Aix is expensive, but well worthwhile, and there are many students who live off of 600E a month and do fine. I just had an inclination to travel all over western europe and go out 3-4+ times a week...

Personal comments
You need a bank accout and proper rent agreements to get CAF assistance. Also apply for the assistance as soon as possible as funds take time to be delivered. Also note that you cant cask American checks in France... or atleast it is very difficult. Lastly, use either credit cards or credit unions to minimize transaction and currency conversion costs.

4.0/5
Overall
- différents cours autour de l'économétrie : permet un savoir complet de la matière.
- Complémentarité des matières économiques avec des matières mathématiques : permet de mieux comprendre les bases économiques, les démonstrations économiques ...
- Professeurs qualifiés MAIS parfois un professeur n'enseigne pas la matière dans lequel il est spécialiste : les étudiants sont confus.
- Vie étudiante correcte,  Proche du crous 500metres

Course recommendations
I was in a relatively structured program for language learners so my slelction was limited. If I were to do it again I would have taken more french courses so I could have taken courses with french students at the university. On that same note though I viewed studying abroad as more of a cultural life experience so wasn't as interested in the academic side as much as immersing and enjoying life.

Personal comments
The system is a bit different from the anglo system on several differnt levels. Grading, teacher student interaction, and general course structure. I for one enjoyed the academic structure. Teachers are more critical and openly corrective of students, there is generally less work, and in my case less tests than at my home university. Suggestions.. I really dont have any.

Personal comments
In the country in general, I sometimes had difficulties with some of the slang, but as I continued to go out with the same people I learned the majority of it, and was not afraid to ask when I didn´t understand something. I had a harder time in my courses asking questions, but understood more of the lecture because the professor would repeat everything two or three times. It happened that sometimes even the French students around me would miss somethings as a couple of the professors were from Africa with very strong accents.

Personal comments
Universities in France don't have much of a "on campus-life", so student residents are mainly for the ones who can't afford an appartment in the city, considering it is really expensive. But if you're a foreign exchange student you can apply for a room in the residence, which shouldn't be too difficult to get. Although, don't expect something neet and luxurious like it could be in the US or Canada, most of the times your room is super tiny (9sq meters), shared bathroom and shared kitchen (sometimes maybe 2 floors above yours).

They are old, the showers and bathrooms are shared. It is pretty clean but I've seen better in bigger university dorms. All in all, it was an experience where I had to laugh or I was going to cry! The neighbours were ethnic like me, so that was great and I made a lot of friends. So yes, if I had to do it again, I would.
