Pros and Cons
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The staff and teachers are great, it's a great university with fantastic International MSc programs. The tuition fees are reasonable but it's an expensive city in comparison to the other cities in France.

Happily experience

I studied foreign languages applied to international trade and I am very happy with the experience because I have advanced both in the world of economics and learned languages that I will serve as Arabic, English and Italian
