Sorbonne University – France

Student: Jessica 

Subject: Modern Languages (French and Spanish)  

As part of her Modern Languages degree, Jessica was required to spend time studying in a French-language institution, giving her a chance to put her learning into practice. She made the most of Sorbonne University’s vast academic offerings, taking a class on Paris in the 1600s and the history of France’s royal family. Jessica felt she was easily able to tailor her year abroad experience, getting chances to learn more about subjects that interested her, particularly French history and culture. 
In her spare time, Jessica took advantage of Sorbonne University’s location and explored Paris, visiting the Catacombs, the Pantheon, the French War Museum, the Paris National Opera, the Louvre, and many other exhibitions and institutions dedicated to famous French figures.  
This experience left her feeling extremely glad to have been able to study abroad, and thoroughly recommends the experience to anyone interested in learning more about other cultures and nations.
