Nope! I was familiar with traveling abroad and knew mostly what to expect.

I loved the program and the people that I met! It was a very cultural experience and I think the professors tried hard to accommodate for all the different nationalities.

Be sure to explore Brittany and Normandy (the beach is also pretty close by). I think it's real important to get to know your surroundings and the area in which you live. Don't forget to bring a raincoat and umbrella as it rains a lot in Rennes! And be ready to taste some seafood - the area is known for its fresh fish!

Not reallt; nothing is more satisfying than being dumped in a foreign country and surviving, and actually enjoying it.

Very large university. You would meet many other foreign student who are in the same predicament. Comforting atmosphere.

Ryanair do the cheapest flights but check out EuroStar who had an offer of 590francs from Rennes to Lille to London, return.

That I had to pay more for my train tickets because I was over 26. I would've bought a Eurail pass.

I would recommend it . However, as I said somewhere else, try to takes course outside of the international student cirriculum. There will be more of a chance to meet French students.

If they finally have more events with the other students...GO...GO...GO. It was a bit difficult for us to meet French students as we were all in another building all the time. Try to meet people outside of the university too. The town is about more than the university. Learn about the people and the culture. It's very interesting. I met so many nice people!! I loved that it was a smaller town as compared to Paris for example. There's more of a feeling of belonging.

Professors' lectures (cours magistral) as the predominant way of teaching is not always the best option

Go into halls, they're not bad at all, you can always move out if you don't like it, but its better to make friends first and halls are a great way to do that. Go out and meet other erasmus people, try and make friends from Rennes, they can show you around and help you get the best out of the town!!

Its cheapest to fly to Paris Charles de Gaulle and get the train, you'll have to get the metro from CDG to Montparnasse. To go south you have to go via Paris too. Don't worry too much about the courses or how well you're doing, its better to get out there and speak French!!! I did CIREFE classes too which are helpful and free for one semester. Enjoy yourself.

That simply living with a French host family is not always enough to make you part of it (as had happened in Holland). That in most cases you absolutely must force yourself onto them in order to forge a real relationship.

I think it was an excellent program. Tough, but you really got a taste of French university life, even though it was tailored to International students. And the professors were great.

I could probably only give the same tips as with every experience abroad, take advantage of your time as much as possible. every time you think of something you want to do, book it and go do it because suddenly you have 2 days left and no more time.
