Many young Europeans use the opportunity to study abroad for a semester - either during school or later at the university. A very popular destination is France.
The European Consumer Centres of Germany and France published an online guidebook that helps with the first bureaucratic hurdles. It gives important information, e.g. about possible financial support, finding an apartment and public transportation. It's written in German.
The practical tips make it easier for students to manage their daily live in a foreign country. A second brochure is especially for young French people who want to go to Germany.
The brochures are available for download free of costs.
