Students willing to stay in Paris will have to pay around 850 Euros per month towards their accommodation. It is because, Paris is costlier as compare to the other cities of France.

We strongly recommend students to select their accommodation before leaving for France because searching will become more challenging. You can comfortably look for options from your native place through online property platforms and make your booking. Also, sometimes, property owners do not trust you if you visit them offline and further it creates problem is signing the contract and rent deeds. Hence to take an informed decision, make sure to arrange the accommodation for sure. If you are not sure, make the booking for few days only and meanwhile search for permanent accommodation.

There are a wide variety of programs available to students pursuing a study abroad program in Bordeaux that could be incorporated into your current academic load. If you’re looking to take on rigorous courses – similar to ones at your home college or university – you may want to consider a semester, or full year, abroad. If you’re looking for a lighter course load to let you explore your temporary home, that may also include excursions to other French cities, you might want to pursue a summer study abroad program. Of course either type of program could be a fit for your needs and goals. Just read program descriptions carefully and talk to your preferred program for details.

Programs offered in Bordeaux may overlap with required courses from your own school’s curriculum. Just check with your academic advisor to see if credits will be transferable. Language students might particularly benefit from studying abroad in Bordeaux – especially those studying French! Programs could provide an immersive opportunity to test your skills. Students pursuing other degree concentrations, like literature, art history, theatre, and music, might be interested in studying French forms of these topics. Finally, those interested in business might benefit from Bordeaux’s unique position and involvement with the French wine industry.

While you may focus on your singular concentration for the main part of your studies, you could also tap into some electives to personalize your program. As wine is such a big part of Bordeaux – both business and consumption – many study abroad programs in Bordeaux may offer winemaking certificates as a fun addition. What a great way to see what makes Bordeaux…Bordeaux!
