Course recommendations
I didn't have to pass any exams, so my view is probably different to that of someone who had to - I think I would find it tough going if I had to. I only had to study courses worth 30 ECTS points. At the beginning of the year I started several courses, then dropped the ones I disliked until I was down to 30pts. I didn't do the exams, although that was more to save 440€ rent, not because I particularly disliked the exams. For some reason it was much easier to get to know other international students than French students; I'm not really sure why that is. For some reason French uni classes are like being in school, with, in my experience, more formal teacher-student relationships than in Britain (the teacher is called "monsieur" (well, assuming he's male); once the classroom was empty, but everyone waited until he had entered before they went in).

Overall
Personal recommendation
I would reccomend the area, the culture is very friendly and accomodating. The University however I felt was accademicaly unorganised. I would definately reccomend the area, particular if you're interested in winter sports as this is a prime location for carrying these out.

Course recommendations
First year courses in France are always packed so you might find yourself 100 rows back in an auditorium finding it hard to hear much, so if you are after more interaction with the lecturers try and access second year lectures. I was allowed to choose my subjects which gave me a chance to try out subjects I wouldnt be able to take in my home university.

Personal recommendation
The level of content is maybe not as high as in Germany but they have a different kind of studying that might improve personal skills better

ABOUT
Bien que déjà mentionnée au Moyen-Age, la présence d'un enseignement supérieur en Savoie remonte véritablement au lendemain de la dernière guerre mondiale. C'est ainsi que, progressivement, furent institutionnalisées, par conventions avec les universités voisines, diverses formations littéraires, juridiques et scientifiques.
En 1960, création du Collège Scientifique Universitaire. En 1963, transformation en Collège Littéraire Universitaire. Ensuite, en 1970, l'établissement devint Centre Universitaire de savoie (Lettres, langues, Sciences Humaines - Sciences et des Techniques) rattaché aux facultés de Grenoble, avant de devenir enfin, le 27 juin 1979, une Université de plein exercice. Cependant, durant ces années de mutation, l'Université n'a cessé de se développer.
La création de l'IUT d'Annecy, en 1973, avec deux premiers départements (Génie Mécanique et Techniques de commercialisation), l'obtention de nouvelles habilitations de premier, second et troisième cycles, l'ouverture de l'Ecole d'Ingénieurs de Chambéry (ESIGEC) en 1988, et l'Ecole Supérieure d'Ingénieurs d'Annecy (ESIA) en 1992 (anciennement Faculté Annécienne des Sciences et des Techniques, créée en 1981) sont là pour en témoigner.
