Study in one of France's most historic cities, Bordeaux. This amazing city dates back to the 3rd century BC. Located in the southern part of France, it is one of the nation's richest cities due to wine exports. Bordeaux has an exceptional location between the Atlantic Ocean, Pyrenees, and Auvergne Mountains. The city is well known for its magnificent Gothic cathedrals and 18th century mansions. In addition, St. Michel's Church and its bell towers are historical landmarks from the 15th century that are still intact today. Home to more than 200,000 residents, Bordeaux is proud of its ethnically diverse population and lively university community.
