Studying and Working in France: A Student Guide
This is a substantially revised, updated and expanded version of the authors' Student Guide to French Universities. It should be of interest to all English-speaking students, both linguists and non-linguists, who need practical advice when planning to study or work in France. General information is given on the French higher education system, work placements, assistantships, accommodation, life in the student community and procedures for coping with French bureaucracy. The reference section includes a presentation of some twenty universities, their towns and local amenities; a glossary of terms; and appendices designed to complement the guidance given in the text on communications with employers or academic or public authorities.
