UK Student just moved to Lausanne

Hi everyone

I am a UK student in English and French Literature who has just moved to Lausanne for an ERASMUS exchange at UNIL. I have only been here a week but have already been seduced by the views and people in this city! I'm initially contracted to one semester but (if I can afford it) would like to stay the year.

I'm going to be taking French courses too because my skills are very rusty and everyone here speaks at least three more languages on average then people back home in England!

I'm also going to be advertising myself as a proof reader of English language documents (essays, correspondence, cover letters, CVs etc.) once I'm able to post on the Markets forum - or even a English tutor.

Does anyone have any other tips on how to survive in this expensive country?!

Would be great to meet any other Lit students, english/french speakers etc. in the area.

Jon

Welcome to the Forum, and the Romandie. Take a look at Events to connect.
Also consider how to reach local multis like Nestle, Tetra-Pak who might need your services. Enjoy the <<vendanges>>!

Hello!

I'm an assistant teacher in the medieval French section at UNIL, pop in to say hello if you have any questions about studying/living in Lausanne!

Re: UK Student just moved to Lausanne

Hi Jon,

My name is Ciara and I am also new to Lausanne. I came here about a month ago now, working as an AuPair in the heart of the city. Looking to meet other students/aupairs/young people who are also new to the city! Perhaps we can get a group of people together for a drink or café?

Re: UK Student just moved to Lausanne

sure that sounds great. a lot of my fellow students are also au pairs or teaching english to children of young families. are you doing that full-time? what part of Lausanne are you living in? Flon? Riponne? I'm intrigued since I'm looking for a flat outside of student accommodation for next semester
