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

INSA Lyon was one of the 6 options I decides for my Erasmus experience. Some friends told me their Erasmus experiences at Insa and I decided to follow their examples. I searched online the reputation and the possibilities offered by this university. I wanted to learn french. I read in the documents online that there was the possibility to attend to a lot of laboratories.

What did you enjoy during your INSA Lyon experience?

I enjoyed the laboratories, because I don't have this possibility in Italy. I enjoyed the fact that I had a "buddie", so I could ask her everything I needed.

What did you enjoy in Lyon?

Lyon is amazing. There are a lot of things to do and to see. I love sightseeing so it was a great experience. I love that it is full of people from each part of the world, it is so international.

What advice would you offer to future exchange students?

It's very hard to understand how things work at INSA, but after the first two months full of worries it will be a great experience! Be patient!
