Student Life in France
Life is good for the French student as they will be studying in a beautiful country and are helped to enjoy the time they spend there, thanks to there being many discounts available.
There are student restaurants that charge much less than conventional ones and also help is available when it comes to housing and rent, health insurance and discounts will cover the likes of transport, museum entry, libraries, and even non educational events such as sporting events.
With regards to housing a foreign student will get the same benefits as a French one and this will help when it comes to money management. The French culture is quite Bohemian and this means that smoking and drinking are done as a matter of course. There are many immigrants in France and while by and large there have not been any serious incidents there have recently been rules set our regarding the hijab and when and where it can be worn.
Language can be a problem as while it would be wrong to say that the French do not speak English, they do not embrace it in the way that other countries do. It can be expensive to learn and there may be communication issues until the language is learned.
As the cost of study is lower here, there is the chance to spend more money on living in France, and during the holidays there will be plenty to do. With discounted transport, it will be possible to visit all areas and spend days skiing, sunbathing, living it up in Paris or relaxing in a Southern French rural village.
