I had the opportunity to study at this university for one semester and I really enjoyed it. As an Erasmus student, I had all the support I required and everybody was ready to help. Also, the French Classes at the Institut de Francais, recommended by UO were extremely useful. Also, the library is well organised and has plenty of books.View more
What I really liked is that professors and administration are really attentive to students opinion. We could change courses, could always openly say what we didn’t like and be sure it will be reviewed.
Some courses have too much general information, which is not masters degree level in my opinion. However, many other subjects that I had now are very useful during my internship.
I also would like the University to help its students to find internships.
As to the general impression of the 2 years of studies, it is rather positive and I would recommend it.View more
A good learning experience being an international student surrounded by multicultural students from all over the world. The quality of education is good with well-known faculties available but could be improved (especially when teaching international students in the English language and few professors face difficulties in expressing their thoughts in English).
Few people at the student administration department(Les Hetres) are not always friendly unless you speak good French. It may not always leave a good impression. Instead of showing unfriendly behavior, encourage them in a positive way to learn French.
Options are available to perform extracurricular activities like sports etc.
Overall, I recommend this University.
I found that the environment is very adaptable and super friendly
The Master LAME courses were really interesting and sometimes challenging. However, the language courses promised was not what expected. I hoped for way more especially the french language. Its was definitely not sufficient for someone who is a beginner or intermediate. The other challenge was to get an internship in English..Not easy at all..at all.. Last but not least, the amazing international environment filled with wonderful people from all walks of life.. This definitely made the journey worthwhile.
The University of Orléans is very welcoming, it helps international students like my self, by creating students clubs and programs full of informations about the city and the campus.
It’s well tructured, with a very beautiful view of the lake.
The one little problem is that it’s a little bit far from the city center.
Nice experience in general!
The university campus is quite big and diverse. It offers multitude of programmes to choose from and at a very reasonable fee structure. Professors are very experienced in their domain and are friendly towards students. I think this university needs more recognition.View more
This is the old university and has its own traditions of teaching and its own unique atmosphere. The student residences are located not far from university that facilitates your everyday life. The canteen is not expensive. The libraries are full of necessary books. The life of students after studies is also active. There is a possibility to practice different sports.
The professors are competent and friendly. There are programmes in English. Many foreigners. The city of Orleans is calm and relatively cheap.
Nice place to obtain knowledge and pass your young years!
Good uni, but all depends on a studying program. International management program is a bit chaotic in terms of its content: subjects and information given within the course. French language course for expats is not enough efficient (especially for students with advance levels).View more
It was a good university and more importantly in a student city.
Education was affordable for all, almost free of charge.
However, for my part, it lacked choices of foreign languages at the university having chosen an international formation. They only offered Spanish, German and Japanese with English. Same program in Paris and there were more choices.
Sometimes, I had classes that didn’t make sense and I didn’t understand why some of them were compulsory and/or why they did propose them. I would have liked to have more classes on international trade and also to have more practice instead of technical and the concept of only taking notes, even if at the end of 3rd year and for masters degree we had to do internships which was a good experience even for a short time as it allowed students to acquire professional skills. Some teachers were very good and others…
Didn’t leave on campus so I cannot give my opinion about it. I visited some dorms and rooms were quite small.
Other thing, uni was a bit far from the city center and sometimes there weren’t enough buses and so students could wait a long time depending on their schedule.
Either way, I would still recommend that university.
The people, professor and students are helpful and nice. The level of study is pretty good. The University provides courses in English program. However, It’s important to have a good level of French, otherwise it’s really difficult to live in Orléans.View more
