Preparing for France: 1 Month Departure

Exactly one month to go before I leave for Lille, France!

In honor of this, I've decided to compile all the things one might need to have settled before going to France (as a student):

  • Visa (it's recommended to apply for a visa 3 months before you leave)
  • Accommodations
  • Credit/Debit/ATM card(s) with a bank in your home country that will work in France
  • Have your birth certificate and all diplomas translated to French
  • Review or start learning French for goodness sake! (To review the very minimal French that I learned in high school, I've been watching French movies and going on livemocha.com)
  • RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH. About the amount of money you will be needing, type of clothes to bring, places to visit, safety precautions, transportation system, etc!
