Why did you choose INSA Lyon? Fields of study, laboratories, school reputation, experiencing French life?

I was advised to apply for the Erasmus+ grant to study at INSA Lyon for a semester. I had always been interested in studying in France so I could practice speaking the language but also because of the quality of the higher learning institutes in France. Well, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to come here.

What did you enjoy during your INSA Lyon experience?

Especially college life. You meet many people who come here on exchange or for a double degree; it’s very easy to make friends and practise speaking other languages.

What did you enjoy in Lyon?

The city is very beautiful and full of history. It’s not overcrowded like other large cities. It is peaceful and safe.

What advice would you offer to future exchange students?

Don’t think twice about studying at INSA. You will feel very welcome and you can visit many places cheaply. Take advantage of the city’s activities and those held by the different clubs and societies at INSA.
