La rentrée (3 weeks later)…
I was pretty happy to head in to uni yesterday, a week after la rentrée (start of term) for everyone else. It was the welcome day for continuing students – I was excited to see my old friends and, at the 15-week mark, the summer holidays are getting just a little too long !
I thought that, as we’ve all been here for at least one semester and know the drill (insurance, methods of payment) and we don’t need to do any of the placement tests, we’d get everything organised to start classes next Monday.
But no. It’s France. Silly me !
Friday is the (leniant) deadline to prove that we’re insured for the year. My payday is next Wednesday, timetables will be ready next Thursday, we meet our group and choose our options next Friday and, finally, classes start the Monday after.
We did receive a cute little diary, and a pencil, but yep.
Two more weeks of summer holidays…
