My problems with administration

Administrative problems are also important and there are things you need to know.

  1. The bank: I don't want to advertise but BNP give you 30 euros just for opening an account. The problem with the banks here is that everything takes a long time, for security reasons, I suppose. However, you have to get everything by letter and it takes up a week to do anything.
  2. CAF: CAF allowance: In case anyone doesn't know, it is an organisation that gives aid to residents of Bordeaux. It is necessary to have everything in order, to ask for it. For example, I didn't have the European card and it was impossible for me to ask for it until the problem had been fixed.
  3. The university: Just as well that I arrived 10 days before classes started because I had to fill out a load of paperwork. The most important thing is the student card which you need to do everything.
