Study plan

Myriam (Université d'Angers)

"I decided to do the Double Degree Programm ITS because I wanted to improve my German and I would end up with the double German and French diploma. As I want to work in tourism, having a popular foreign language is a great advantage. […]
During my time here, I created a lot of great memories with my German friends, as well as with the other exchange students. I think my best memory is my hike to the mountain Brocken to watch the sunrise.“
