The city of Orléans, regional capital of the Région Centre, located one hour away from Paris by train or car, has radically evolved. It now offers a pleasant living environment to study in good conditions. The old neighbourhoods were valued and are now an animated setting at day and night. Moreover, it offers a very rich industrial network which allows it to have an unemployment rate under the national average.
