In a Univeristy such as Chambery there is likely to be a large groups of Erasmus students from all over the world who will have a common language of English and you have to make a real effort to find a french speaking crowd

There is a real ski culture and it is worth trying some of the university ski trips as they are really good value for money and hassle free if you havent skied before.

If you are travelling alone maybe staying in university accomodation will be an easy way to make french friends. Make the most of the good rail service as Paris is only a few hours away as is the south coast. It goes so fast so make the most of every day!

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.

I had an amazing time, the key to having a good time is being outgoing, and independant. I would not have met so many wonderful people if I had not been both of these, and I know other people that had awful times, but in my opinion this was down to their lack of effort to integrate with the other students.

You don't get bed covers, pillows, kitchen utensils! Ease up on the clothes and bring more essential things! On the other hand, you will have a roommate most likely, so costs can be divided!

Savoie University is amazing. Teachers (except for 1) were helpful and kind. Students took an interest in me and cared for my success. It's in a great location. Who else can see the Alpes from their campus!?

This exchange experience changed my life. At first it was the hardest change I had ever made - and at the end, I didn't want to leave. I did not want to leave a country where travel is so easy and beautiful, and the people are warm and funny :)

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

The best thing to learn the language and get in contact with people is -having a job, e.g. in a restaurant -joining travels, weekend trips like skiing -initiaton of parties and events, e.g. "Running dinner": the students of one semster cook (in teams)for the first semester and foreign students to get to know each other!

It is a good oportunity to travel. Chambery is at one hour far from Geneva and the surroundings of this lovely town, which is located in the Alps, are very interesting.

Overall
Je suis actuellement en étude à Chambéry dans les domaines de l'énergie, le bâtiment et l'environnement. C'est un domaine d'avenir et je suis dans une école avec de bon professeur et dans une région très concerné par ce domaine. Le cadre de vie est vraiment agréable entouré de lacs et de montagnes, il existe une multitude d'activité pour tous les goûts. Je conseil vraiment mon école (Polytech) et la région pour découvrir de beaux paysages et faire de bonnes études.
