The Citadel You wonder what to do in Lille? Go to the Citadelle, hidden by the greenery of its park. On the orders of Louis XIV, the Citadel of Lille was built by Vauban, who himself named it "the king of citadels", in the 17th century. In the shape of a star and surrounded by five bastions, it was built to protect the city of Lille after its conquest. On sunny days, it is a favorite place for the inhabitants of Lille.

Vieux Lille Imagine charming cobbled streets lined with magnificent buildings of Flemish architecture and spread over nearly 2 km2. You are in the Vieux Lille ! It is undoubtedly the unavoidable district of the city. Its brick and stone facades bear witness to the city's past, from the 14th to the 20th century. The Vieux Lille is a district as much appreciated by the inhabitants as by the visitors. It is full of art galleries, small boutiques and luxury stores, as well as very popular cafés, bars and restaurants. If you want to visit Lille, do some shopping or just stroll around, we can only recommend you to visit the Vieux Lille.

The Grand'Place Grand'Place is the name generally given to the central square of a city in northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Its official name is the Place du Général-de-Gaulle, in honor of the famous man born in Lille. The Grand'Place of Lille is located and constitutes the heart of the city. It is here that the huge Ferris wheel is installed during the Christmas period. The rest of the year, it is a place of meeting, at the foot of the statue of the Goddess built in 1842, and of passage for the inhabitants of Lille. You will have understood it, the Grand'Place is a lively place.

The Tripostal This former mail sorting building has been transformed into a contemporary art exhibition hall and a theater.

The Palais des Beaux-Arts If it rains, take the opportunity to visit Lille via the Palais des Beaux-Arts. You will find it on the Place de la République, in front of the Préfecture du Nord. With its many prestigious paintings, it is considered one of the richest French museums. While strolling through the alleys of this superb 19th century palace, you will be able to admire great collections of European works, especially Flemish and Dutch. Rubens, Goya, Delacroix, Courbet, but also Rodin and Claudel are some of the great artists exposed in the permanent collection. Don't hesitate to ask for information about the temporary exhibitions when you visit!

The Wazemmes Market Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday morning, the Wazemmes market attracts crowds for its popular and colorful market. You'll find everything from fruits and vegetables to textiles and local and foreign products. The Wazemmes market is renowned for its conviviality and is a must-see during a stay in Lille.

Gare Saint-Sauveur This former freight station now houses a bar, a cinema and an exhibition hall.

"I did my Erasmus in Lille and I have previously worked in Paris. What mattered to me for my master year was an affordable and compact city that allows me to focus on my studies, and at the same time offers enough in-city opportunities to keep that studies-life balance. About classes, one of the projects I worked on last year was 'Hope for Homeless'. Its goal was purely philanthropic and its objectives were to secure donations, introduce new partners to the initiative and provide relief to individuals who are in need. We were able to partner with Hope Foundation that assisted Ukrainians who had lost their homes due to the conflict. We received, organised and delivered the collections to the courier firm to aid those in need. "

"I did my BBA in Intenational Business at SKEMA and spent a year in the US and China. For my master year I wanted something different. Here I can use my car to commute. I can buy fresh food from local markets and on my way home I come across from street art paint shows to underground concerts. About classes, I can give the example of a project I worked on, as part of the Leadership Skills course, I had the opportunity to work on a real case rural development project where we assessed the feasibility of implementing an irrigation system in a small village outside of Morocco."

"A colleague and alumni suggested SKEMA to me. The people here are friendly and a lot of them speak English. It feels like home. Studying abroad was an important step for me. Last week we had PPMBD Alumnis that talked about their professional lives after SKEMA and oriented us through the job/internship research. As an example of project I worked on, we created an information platform for AI interviews, where students can understand the process directly and efficiently. Part of our 'AI taking over interview process' project was a blog page where we included hot topics, tips, suggestions and a space where others can share their own experiences. "

"I live in an apartment outside of Lille. I can get to the city centre by foot in 5 to 10 min, it is very convenient. This gives me the flexibility to align PPMBD's pace with my personal needs. This way I can travel outside of the city and the country without compomising or making other sacrifices in my schedule. About classes, an example of project I worked on could be when my team and I collaborated with the KCenter to create a virtual reality simulation that will help in our choice of electives. "

"I had friends who studied at SKEMA and that played a big part in choosing both the school and its campus. Through a slower, quieter and more flexible environment I do not waste time in commuting, everything is within half an hour radius and I can travel to places outside of France. To give an example of project I worked on, our team decided to develop a mobile app to provide next generation project managers with an intelligent and agile tool that helps them adapt in remote settings. We incorporated features such as, project listings and project details to view, create and edit projects on the app as well as visual charts by linking Power BI & Power Apps to visualise the graphs needed for the project and to view the progress of the project, among others."

Housing in Paris Here is an indication of the average monthly rent in Paris based on our rental index 2022: ·      Furnished Private Room with utilities (best for students): €789. ·      Furnished Studio with utilities (best for singles, couples, or new graduates): €1,101. ·      Unfurnished Apartment with utilities (best for couples or families): €1,978. These prices are just the average rental prices across Paris. Depending on which neighborhood you live in, prices will vary. If you choose to live outside of the center, you can find more affordable places. How much you earn will affect how you allocate your budget towards your needs. In Paris, the average salary is €2,570 per month. Without the rent, your monthly costs will be around €950. The average rental price is high in Paris, so you’ll likely spend most of your salary on the rent.

Groceries The cost of groceries will vary depending on your eating habits, diet and which store you are shopping from. The good news is that Paris has many options for you to shop from, depending on your budget. You can shop at some discount stores, such as Franprix, Aldi or Lidl. Supermarket chains such as Carrefour or Intermarché. Or niche stores for organic produce at Biocoop or NaturéO. Depending on where you shop from expect to pay €200 to €300 for your monthly food expenses.

Health Insurance Health insurance in France depends on residency, not employment status. In France, the average cost of health insurance for one person is €40 per month. Of course, prices vary depending on the policy. Generally, basic coverage will cover basic dentistry costs too. But complex procedures will be on you.

Transportation Public transport: Paris has an extensive public transportation system that allows you to  reach every corner of the city at an affordable price. Metro: A single one-way metro ticket will cost €1.90. But if you’re planning to use public transport regularly, opt for a monthly pass for €73. The monthly pass covers all the zones of the metro, bus, regional train, and tram trips. Cycling: Cycling is still a common transportation method. You’ll find Vélib' public sharing bicycles throughout the city. Annual subscription fees start from €3.10 per month.

Leisure Activities One of the many perks of living in Paris is benefiting from a wide selection of entertainment and leisure activities. Whether you want to treat yourself by eating out or seeing a new movie, it’s always best to budget well so you won’t empty your bank account. Restaurants: from Michelin star restaurants to small cafés specializing in cuisines from every culture, prices will vary.
