If you live in a FJT, accommodation for students and young workers, you might even find that your rent is entirely subsidised by the state.

11. And there’s plenty to do with all your free time. You could visit other cities - intercity transport is pretty cheap if you take a slower train.

France is blessed with a wonderful abundance of museums. You’ll find several in each major city (and even in small villages). Lyon, for example, has 18 city museums.
