Université Paul Valéry - Montpellier III

Université Paul Valéry - Montpellier III is an exchange destination for Utrecht University Bachelor students of the faculty of Humanities in Montpellier, France.

"The city of Montpllier is really great - not too big and not too small - and the university is fine. It was very interesting for me to see how courses were given in another country and I learned a lot from other students who had other ways of thinking than we have in the Netherlands" - experience from a former exchange student
