more info on public transport (such as the subscription weekly-monthly) that is very convenient. Moreover all the museums are free up to 25years in EU (even Versailles, without going through a travel agency)

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I didn't like the ateliers at all, something unuseful (no link with what you are doing in the morning). The morning is divided just with a break of 20 min at 11. You have the same professor all 4 hours. Then I didn't like that there are new students even during the week..

Make sure you are well informed about what will be taught in each class, especially if you are on limited time. Cafes are great although sometimes service is very slow. Cafe next door has better coffee than the school.

The administration was a bit slow as I tried to change my afternoon class repetedly since I was, in my opinion and according to the management themselves, not on an high enough level. Still I was on the list for the same class every week and it made me somewhat tired and unenthusiastic about them.
