Rouen, located on the Seine River, is the capital city of Normandy. It has a total population including metropolitan areas of about 500,000. It is known for its Notre Dame cathedral, Rouen Castle, and museums. It is a well connected city both within the region and others in France. Getting around the city is easy with its tram and bus systems.
NEOMA was founded in 2013 as a merger of two premier business schools in the region. While one campus is located in Reims, NC State's primary partnership for bilateral exchange is with the NEOMA campus in Rouen. This campus offers a wide range of management courses taught in English with French language courses accessible to international students. Being the oldest business school in France, NEOMA Rouen is teeming with opportunities and places to relax, to learn something, to spend time with friends and to wander around the shopping streets in the city centre or the wide array of parks and gardens. The university itself is located in the hills above the city center; however, students will have plenty of opportunities to explore all that Rouen has to offer.
Rouen is the capital of Normandy, an region rich with medieval history and contemporary culture. In addition, Rouen is roughly 1-1.15 hours by train from Paris, making it an ideal location for both study and exploration.

In addition to having a passport, students studying in France for a semester or academic year are required to have a French study visa. Once admitted into the program by both NC State and the host university, students will immediately need to begin the visa process on CampusFrance. This process could take one to two months and will require the student to appear in-person at a French consulate or embassy, likely in Atlanta.
