Main differences compared to Nova SBE teaching methods

Smaller campus, Online exams for most classes, semester is not split into two terms but duration of classes vary from 2 weeks to 1 month to a whole semester.


Is the local CEMS Club active?

A lot of goodwill, but the Cems group is smaller (+25 people) and Russian students have a smaller budget than other students which reflects in type of activities.


Available options for accommodation and suggestions

I do not recommend dormitories. There are a few options; stay in dormitory for 1 week and search with classmates for apartment / ask around before leaving / search on websites like Airbnb

Dormitories (60 euro/month), Average apartment (300-400), Nice apartment (450-550)
