How many of you have fantasized about studying abroad in France?
Or have your children pined for the opportunity to live abroad and study there?
The daughter of a close family friend spent a year traveling and studying abroad in Paris and
the experience changed her sense of self and her perceptions about life in so many wonderful ways.
Of course, she now speaks and reads French perfectly, but she also has a new-found confidence and
sense of independence that is very gratifying to see.
Her year in France has broadened her immeasurably and I am so thrilled for her.
So when my cousin’s daughter told us that she wanted to spend a year studying
French and international business in Paris, I was very pleased, but her parents’ delight
was tempered by their monetary concerns: “How much will it cost to study in France?”
While living and attending university in France is an exciting prospect, planning this amazing
adventure with their daughter could be a daunting process.
So many questions swirled through their minds, for example:
“How do we budget for her time as a student in France?”
“Where will our child live and with whom?”
“What are the student accommodation options and how can we locate them?”
Not sure where to turn?
