Megan WYNNE – United Kingdom – Summer School
Where do you come from?
I come from a city in the north of England called Sheffield. In the 19th century it gained an international reputation for steel production, so my city is also known as the ‘Steel city’. I also attend university here at The University of Sheffield. Despite the poor weather, the city is a great place to live – there’s always something to do.
What studies have you already done, and what courses did you attend during the Summer School?
I’m currently studying a BA in Business Management at the University of Sheffield. However this year, I spent the semester doing an Erasmus semester at ESC Rennes, in the north of France. At the summer school I chose the Marketing trends and the Strategy in Europe modules.
Why did you choose TBS Summer School over other summer schools?
I chose TBS as I love France, and I wanted further opportunity to improve my French, and also experience education further south in France.

My best moments were meeting the other students, and making friends with people from countries all over the world. Also the night of Rio Loco was fantastic.
What did you appreciate about Toulouse: the people, the town, the School etc.?
The beautiful weather! Everyone was really friendly. The school was clean with good facilities. There was always something to do in Toulouse.
What advice would you give to a future Summer School Student?
I would advise future students to get involved with all the social activities. I would also recommend students to choose modules that are different topics to what your course major is.
