Every year, this city towards the south of the country’s Atlantic coast attracts students from all over France.
Bordeaux, which has been substantially modernised and spruced up in recent years, with the coming of the tram system in particular and the complete redevelopment of the Garonne waterfront, offers an ideal environment to both live and study.
The sixth most important university town in France with 70,000 students and two universities, i.e. the University of Bordeaux (http://www.u-bordeaux.fr/) and Bordeaux Montaigne University (http://www.u-bordeaux3.fr/), Bordeaux offers a particularly conducive environment for studying.
The University of Bordeaux was created in September 2013 after a merger between Bordeaux 1, Bordeaux Segalen and Montesquieu Bordeaux 4 under one name. The aim was to offer a university in a position to stand alongside the largest European universities.
It is organised into five campuses:
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007, Bordeaux’s appeal lies in the architecture, small squares and lively streets of its city centre.
From Place de la Victoire, a focal point of student nights out, and up the rue Sainte Catherine, and main pedestrianised shopping street, you will love wandering aimlessly through the maze of the Saint-Michel and Saint-Pierre districts, up to the Place Gambetta.
Less than an hour from the Atlantic beaches and a short drive from the Pyrenees, Bordeaux and the surrounding area reveal different delights with the changing seasons for breaks away, getting out in the open air and a range of sporting activities.
The hall is brand new, so everything’s flawless, in perfect condition. It really is an ideal place to study.
