Living in the country and attending the language lessons allowed me to improve very quickly but I would say it took about six months until I felt I could speak fluently and confidently.

Personal comments
As an Erasmus student I found the academic system complicated and I ended up doing a mix of courses in English and French which I wasn't really meant to do but it worked well in the end and fulfilled my european credit commitments. I felt the four hour, one question written exams to be excessive and felt that they weren't a good way of examining us.

Personal recommendation
The course of study that I followed was varied and interesting - try to study things not done before. The academic set up can be complicated and if wanting to change modules, just make sure there are the right amount of credits.

Final comments
Get a restau-U card straight away because it is cheap and practical to eat in them and get a carte de culture for cinema etc. Buy a second-hand bicycle because there are many bike routes all over the city and into the country. Also get a carte 12-25 for train travel.

Personal comments
The economic and social side of the university housing was excellent. I was also very lucky get a room on the paul-appell site next to the central campus and not far from the city centre, and close to good shops, restaurants and local transport links.
