Inscription at the University

Well that was extremely easy, well-organised and quick.

Catrin had an appointment time of 10:15 at the University, so we took the 9:30 tram because we weren't entirely sure where we had to present ourselves. 9:45 we entered the reception area of Bordeaux Montaigne, where a charming student told us to join the queue on the other side of the building.

After perhaps 10 minutes of queuing we got to a table where they checked all the documents Catrin had brought, and all was OK.

Then 5 minutes later we were at the counter where everything was sorted, filed and Catrin was given her Certificats de Scolarité, access codes for internet and the library and a receipt for the tuition fees of 190 euros listing where all had been spent.

Then 5 minutes later Catrin's Carte Etudiante was done. This card functions as a payment card in the university restaurants as well as giving proof of student status for concerts, rail travel etc.

By 11:15 we were home.

Amazing!
