Work experience in France:
Welcome to Montpellier
Montpellier lies in the South of France, in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. It’s a beautiful, cosmopolitan city that’s steeped in history, and you’ll soon discover a Mediterranean sense of art de vivre!
The city was founded 1000 years ago by Jews, Muslims and Christians – and with such a diverse history, it’s little wonder that the values of tolerance and fraternity live on to this day.
Montpellier is also home to Aigles, ETS’ sister organisation that’s been running trans-national exchanges since 1985. As a thriving city and popular haunt for students and graduates, Montpellier is a perfect choice for your European work experience.
So – what can you expect during your 12 week placement in Montpellier?
You’ll be met at Montpellier Airport by a Host Organiser, who’ll accompany you to your accommodation...
Your accommodation comes equipped with all facilities, including bed linen, although you should supply your own toiletries and towels.
You’ll be responsible for cleaning your own room, and it should be left in good condition when you leave. For this reason, the host organisation will ask you to pay a deposit of 150 Euros, which will be refunded at the end of the placement if your room is left as you found it.
Choosing your work placement
Please find below some examples of sectors where trainees undertook their work placements in the past:
Opportunities vary according to the time of the year and company availability. The type of placement and type of work will be discussed at interview with the host organiser. New industry sectors are always being explored.
Don’t forget, your placement is about more than work experience. As you’ll discover here, there’s always plenty to see and do!
