Some tips to take into account

HAVE A MEANS OF COMMUNICATION AND PAYMENT FOR FIRST DAYS. Provide a phone that works in France. Record numbers of your contacts: housing, education and emergency numbers. Also make sure your credit card allows you to withdraw money to distributors in France or bring some cash. You'll also find exchange offices.

ASK ABOUT HOME DEVICES. Check with your host institution on such arrangements: Day reception, integration week, etc., and notifies them of your arrival. Also ask for the hours you enroll or try to get an appointment.

PREVENT THE OWNER OF ACCOMMODATION OR THE RESIDENCE OF YOUR ARRIVAL

-If you are housed in university residences: reception will give you the key to your accommodation. Warning! The reception closes at 16 pm and on weekends.

-If you are housed in private: contact your landlord and make an appointment to carry out the state of fixtures and keys.

 

WHAT TO PUT IN MY SUITCASE

-One or two adapters for your electrical devices: phones, tablets, computers ... Voltages perhaps are not the same in France as in your country (220W).

-A bilingual dictionary or language application can prove to be useful especially in the early days, when not yet mastered the language altogether.

- Appropriate clothing. Learn about the climate in France www.meteofrance.com
