it's really dificult to chose the courses, because it takes a lang time before you get al the information, so the lessons are already started which makes it really hard

Overall
I wish I had known...
the academic aspect in Lille is much more difficult then you realise at first site.. for exemple : most of the time the exam is only one question and you have to write 6 pages about that subject in a clear text with an introduction and a conclusion... and the teachers don't pay attention at the fact is you're an erasmus our a normal student,... wich is good but it makes it quite difficult
