5 top tips for students in Paris
You won't be short of things to do in Paris, but will you be short of cash? How can you make the most of Paris and its incredible student life? Nemea Appart'Etud has some tips to help you go out, get around and live without falling into financial ruin.
Eat healthily for less
Your brains need fuel! But eating a balanced diet as a student in Paris isn't easy. One option everyone knows about are the university canteens. It's a good way to get a really affordable meal. Are you passionate about the environment and cooking? Head to the AMAP shop, a mini-market where networks of grocery stores come together to prevent waste. Fancy a treat? There are also loads of student deals throughout the year at fast food restaurants in Paris.
Get around with peace of mind
Transport networks offer great discounts, like the SNCF young persons card for 18-27 yr olds, and the Carte Imagin'R, the holy grail for students in Paris. The latter gives you up to 50% off a monthy RATP (public transport) pass and many other benefits. If that doesn't work for you then you can opt to car share or hire a bike.
Heading out to de-stress from your studies
Ready to party? Paris has something for everyone, nightclubs, bars, barges...if you like to party you won't be disappointed. We recommend lighting up the dance floor at the best student nights in Paris: Le Globo (free entry Fridays and Saturdays) and Duplex (open every day).
Culture for less
Make the most of your student status to get cultured on the cheap! Simply present your student card, and you get free entry to libraries and national museums all year round, and reduced prices on theatre and cinema tickets in the capital.
