Hi Jana, thanks a lot, you really are very helpful. I was wondering whether it is possible to do an Erasmus exchange semester in Menton. Have you ever met someone doing Erasmus there? I know my uni has an agreement with Sciences Po Paris, but I'm not sure if they let me go to Menton, which seems like the perfect place to study for me. I will ask them as soon as uni starts again, but perhaps you know something about this?

Thanks for the reply Jana. Do you know if the module choice for Erasmus students is somehow limited or are they free to choose anything? Do they have to take the compulsory modules like normal students have to? And do you know whether Erasmus students apply directly to Menton or do they send it to Paris, who then transfer them?

Assassindunord: Honestly, everyone here has pretty incredible academic records but what they really want are individuals I spent a lot of my time at high school working on extra-curricular work volunteering in hospitals and working with Amnesty International. I've always been very politically active, that I'm interested but also that I have something to offer the university that I won't just study there but get involved and be part of the student body.
Sicherlich: I have numerous friends that are just doing a semester or a year in Menton, one girl has just come from Jacobs University in Bremen on ERASMUS. I'm not sure how the application system works but I know the grades they require are pretty high what specific questions do you have about the exchanges?
Also, how would you describe the weather there now. And what's the mix of French-European-International students like? My French skills are 'terrible to non-existent', so I'm afraid that's going to be a problem when it comes to socialising with other students there. The campus just looks amazing on pictures, would you say the facilities inside the building are too? How long does the Bus take to Nice? I would imagine Nice is perfect for Night outs and shopping.
I'm also currently trying to sort out my finances for the year in Menton. How much would you say students spend monthly, it says on the website between 700-1100 Euros. Is that realistic? Sorry for the many questions and thanks again for your help.
