"The only guidebook designed specifically to help study abroad students get the most out of their experience in Paris." —Wendy Williamson, director, office of study abroad, Eastern Illinois University
"This book should be required reading for study abroad students!" —Alexandra Mitchell, Paris director, Cultural Experiences Abroad
From its predeparture advice to its extensive coverage of daily life issues, this guide covers everything students need to know to adapt quickly to their new life in Paris and get the most out of their experience as an international student and resident. In addition to serving as a complete how-to manual for study abroad - addressing financial, housing, insurance, packing, and visa issues - the guide also serves as a detailed, student-oriented resource for day-to-day living in Paris. Questions such as How should I deal with administrative tasks? How can I use the public transportation system? and Where are the best spots to buy groceries, eat, party, shop, exercise, and visit? are discussed in depth along with hints for making the most out of the opportunity and traveling further into France and Europe. Hundreds of practical reviews, links, and tips designed to make a student's experience in Paris fun, affordable, and virtually stress-free are also included.
