Come to La Rochelle … you will never regret!
I had a great opportunity to be one of the international students at law faculty in La Rochelle. Pretty serious I can say - it was the best decision of my live to go to France. I spent one year and believe me, it was really hard to leave this place!
La Rochelle is an amazing city - everywhere you can feel touch of history and it has its magic more over surrounded by the ocean and islands it is perfect place where to spend holidays. That year gave me a lot - I improved my English (during great lessons at the faculty - Legal English with Yves Badiou - highly recommended), French and all legal knowledge … and I have friends around the world now. People at the faculty are so kind and they were ready to help us with everything!
La Rochelle is the perfect place where to spend your Erasmus time - because it has everything. So GO! DO IT! You will not regret!

I’ve been studying in La Rochelle for the past two months and I must say it’s really nice! La Rochelle is a beautiful little town that has everything to appeal to students. There are lots of places to go out, and everyone is very nice. Moreover we have a very nice view of the sea from the law school, enjoyable in October with the good weather! Although French classes are not always easy, most of the teachers try to help us as much as they can. I already know that I will miss La Rochelle when I go home.
