Pro-Tips from Past + Current Teaching Assistants


  • If you are placed to work in the smaller towns outside of/around Nice, it's much better to live in Nice (close to the Promenade des Anglais or in the center) and take the bus each day to work. 
  • If you buy an annual pass for the bus pass (Lignes d'Azur, 170€), you'll have access to many surrounding cities in the area.
