Attracted by foreign languages

But I wanted to stop studying science and INSEEC offered me this program which allows me to take courses in English, 30% in the first year and 70% in thesecond andthird years. Next year, I plan to go on a university exchange and why not a double degree in Denmark or Ireland! “
