Stasbourg était magnifique! Past Review

By (French, Oral Roberts University) for

University of Strasbourg: Strasbourg - Direct Enrollment & Exchange

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Going to Strasbourg was amazing and I would choose Strasbourg all over again! I loved being able to spritually grow at Eglise Baptiste de Strasbourg. I loved learning French and being able to walk to Germany! I believe the best time to study abroad in Strasbourg is the Fall semester because the Christmas decorations are the best in the world!

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Classes are longer and the teacher tend to come to class late which seemed unprofessional. However, they are definitely great at teaching French. Don't expect them to speak English because some of them don't even know it! There is less homework but it benefits you greatly to get as much out of your professors as possible. Most of the education, however, is outside of the classroom where you are applying what you have learned.

A Look Back

* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? Go in the Fall. Check out Eglise Baptiste de Strasbourg. Live in the city near the Cathedral Notre Dame de Strasbourg. Invest in a bicycle. If you want to visit other Francophone areas like Paris, Brussels, or Geneva...Try going the first whole month without speaking English because it will really prepare you. Try to find housing before going abroad because it will save you thousands. Scholarships are available for student housing if you apply early to CROUS. Save money by shopping in Kehl,Germany for groceries at LIDL or Aldi.
