The Paris Experience - A Blog by Sara, ESCP Double Degree Student

"The Paris campus of ESCP Europe is nestled into a small community within this famous and beautiful city. Classes are held in the 11th arrondissement (district), only 20 minutes from the Eiffel Tower. This area is filled with nice and inexpensive places for students to eat and to enjoy the French atmosphere and cosmopolitan culture. My favorite local restaurant is one very close to ESCP called "Les pieds sous la table", on the Rue St Maur. The lady who cooks makes the best French quiches! Also, in Paris we love cafés - It's the best Parisian way of meeting with friends and very important to our culture.

"During their free time, students often gather in parks. I like hanging out close to the Invalides. They are huge lawns where you can play soccer on the weekends, bring a picnic and spend evenings drinking some wine with your friends. Students can also stroll through the different areas of the city, explore the shops and enjoy the local way of life. There are also a lot of monuments and museums to visit. Many of them are free for people under 25. I love to climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and enjoy the great view! Or you can explore the city on Parisian bikes called the "Velib". You need to register online and then you can find bikes all over Paris. It has a discount price for Student so it's very cheap. I also recommend exchange students go to visit the castles in the countryside close to Paris such as in Versailles, Fontainebleau and Sceaux. These areas are only a 30 minute train ride away, and you can spend the afternoon taking a nap in the beautiful parks next to the castles!

"While you’re studying in Paris, be sure to take the opportunity to learn some French! Students at ESCP can speak English, but if you want to meet more French people and fit into the culture, I recommend you learn to speak their language. They have French classes for exchange students at ESCP and you can also find students willing to be your conversation partner, but the best way to practice is to make some French friends!

"One opportunity to do this is by participating in one of the extracurricular activities that ESCP offers to all students. These include student organizations, sports teams and exercise classes and they can greatly enhance the semester experience. I played on a handball team one semester and loved it! The biggest student organization on campus is “BDE.” They organize ESCP parties, trips throughout Europe and other socials and events. Also, the ESCP Europe Alumni association also organizes a lot of networking events, which is a great way to meet professionals in your area of study."
