La Rochelle is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the three things it is most known for are one of the largest parks in France, boat racing and one of the oldest and most magnificent ports in Europe. The F1 boat racing events are truly electrifying and sensational. This is where you get to see some of the most powerful boats in action.

Both Poitiers and La Rochelle are cities where you can get lost in time.

Students come to Poitiers and La Rochelle from all parts of the world.

Let us remind you to go through our previous articles on universities in France and update yourselves on the revised fees structure.

As usual, we cover only the public universities on account of affordability and quality of education and also as usual we would suggest you go through their web sites to identify the courses most suited to your aspirations:

Foreign students have their associations in most countries. However, it’s always recommended to mingle with the locals. Not only are they friendly they are also almost always enthusiastic to help you brush up your skills in the French language.

The Living Costs

The cost of living in France is fairly high and it’s recommended that you budget for between 1100 to 1200 $ per month for both of the above cities to meet your expenses in addition to your tuition fees. On this kind of a budget it’s best to aim for a shared accommodation.
