Life in Paris as an international student

It is home to a whopping 79 major museums (museums that receive more than 10,000 visitors a year) as well as theatres, venues and heritage sites. The French capital has also topped a ranking of the best cities to study in. The large student population in Paris is very well supported by the city council – since 2012 it has offered advice and funding to student associations, which they can use towards equipment, spaces and creative projects.
Places to visit and students tips
Paris is the 7th most expensive city in the World, but fear not, you can live like a king on a student's budget. Here are free things to do for students
- The Eiffel Tower: while it does cost money to climb up the tower, it's free to just sit and enjoy the equally stunning views from the grass. Grab a baguette and a cheap bottle of wine for a French picnic under the tower!
- Arc de Triomphe: climbing the Arc de Triomphe for a 360-degree view of the city is a much quicker wait than climbing the Eiffel Tower and is free for students with a visa!
- Champs-Elysées: the most famous avenue in Paris, with picture-perfect French cafes, high-fashion designer stores and 5-star dining.
- Louvre Museum: home to the most famous Mona Lisa. If you're under 25 years old and go on a Friday night after 6pm, or go on the first Sunday of the month during October-March, it is free entrance!
- Love Lock Bridge: is the perfect place to bring your partner to symbolise your affection for one another by attaching a signed lock to the bridge.
- The Paris Flower Market for a beautifully scented stroll and the perfect Instagram snap!
- Parc de Buttes-Chaumont: stretch out on a blanket under a tree in the parc for a mid-afternoon nap, Parisian style.
As for the little Parisian pleasures no one tells you about, but a fellow foreign student would gladly share:
- The rooftop view at Galerie Lafayette.
- Bus line 82, take it from Montparnasse and have a tour....You'll get to roam the streets of Paris and the most famous monuments without realising it.
- Check out la petite ceinture, an old train rail.
- Mur des je t'aime... where love is expressed in all the languages of the world on a wall.
- Sneak into the petits passages de Paris: panorames, passage des princes, grand cerf, and choiseul.
