Why Did I Choose EURECOM?

"I definitely recommend spending a year at EURECOM to anyone!"

Eino (Finnish)

"I definitely recommend EURECOM!
The university building is small and all students are exchange students, so the atmosphere is very positive and social.
The professors are from many different countries and are motivated to lecture and research.
The topics of the courses and research are timely and that boosts studying motivation.
Cote d'Azur as a location is awesome, because here we have only a few months of the "Finnish spring" and the rest of the time it is summer.
One should not fear the infamous bureaucracy of France, because there are many members of the staff of the university, that gladly assist with all the practicalities.
There are multiple opportunities to learn the French language, but knowing the language is not a requisite, as everything can be done in English."

NTNU students at EURECOM

We (Janita, Jomar, Eirik, Christian, Fredrik, Amund, Marius, and all) went to EURECOM in order to do something a bit different for our fourth year, and it turned out to be a great choice.
Here we get:

  • Smaller courses of 5 or 3 credits, meaning you can get a quite broad spectrum.
  • A great fit with the track we are taking back home - getting the course choices approved is not very difficult. (We are from elsys, komtek and data).
  • A very international group of friends
  • Good financial support from Erasmus, lånekassen and CAF.
  • Super nice weather!
