With some previous Erasmus students, we made a list of things you should not forget to take with you. 

  • warm clothes for winter (the average temperature in January is 3°C, but it can also reach -6°C)
  • a webcam for skyping 
  • a pillow and a sleeping bag (could be usefull) 
  • a pair of comfortable shoes for traveling and walking
  • some essential medicaments (it is easy to catch cold in winter)
  • French dictionary
  • maybe an extra phone for a French simcard
  • a bottle opener
  • a shopping backpack 
  • a camera
  • a padlock for locking your backpack/luggage in case you will travel and stay in hostels
  • a cutlery kit
