Which is the best French city to do a masters in FLE (Français Langue Étrangère)?

0 answers

I am an Indian girl who would be moving to France this year to do a masters in FLE. I have to choose between the universities of Rennes 2, Jean Jaurès Toulouse, Stendhal Grenoble (Grenoble Alpes), Franché Comté, Artois and Nantes. Some cities like Toulouse, Rennes have lots of foreign students whereas others like Besançon, Nantes have more of natives. Since I will be doing a masters in the French language, living in which type of city would be beneficial for me? Moreover, I want to work part-time as a translator (French-English/English-French), so, I wanted to know where I could find work easily. Also, given that I am Indian, I want to live in a city free from any kind of hostility or racism. Please suggest the best possible option keeping in mind all these factors.
