Omar, from Egypt

I came to Grenoble to start my PhD in a difficult situation with the pandemic going on, thus, making the process of finding a house even harder than it is normally. After lots of searching, visits and scams that all went in vain, I came across int. mobility. With int. mobility, the process became much easier and smoother. I have provided them with my requirements and budget (I tend to be a bit picky when it comes to where I live :D) and I can see that they really worked hard to match them and bring me the house I wanted in an area near the laboratory where I am doing my PhD. Catherine was my person of contact. She has been nice and helpful. She also spoke good English which is important for international students and not easy to come across in agencies.


Lyne, from Reunion Island

I found housing very quickly in the context of the current health emergency and in the budget I had set.

Catherine assisted me in my search for accommodation both in terms of visits and the administrative aspect. She was very organized for the preparation of the rental file and sped up the signing of the lease.

In terms of visits everything was taken into account to identify the positives and negatives taking into account the expectations I had formulated.

Catherine FIOL, founder of the company int.mobility


Catherine Fiol

I am Catherine FIOL, I am French and have lived 10 years in the United States and Germany. After 30 years as a Quality Engineer in international teams, I founded int.mobility.

My career and personal life have been marked by experiences abroad. At the age of 20, a year of study at a prestigious University of Pennsylvania profoundly changed my perception of the world. Then at the age of 30, in Munich and with my family, I benefited from support by professionals of international mobility, which allowed me to devote myself to my profession as an engineer. Finally, at the age of 40, I created a method of learning French for private pre-schools in the state of Illinois. All these transitions have been facilitated by referents in each of these countries.

It is my turn to be the reference in the assistance to the installation and integration of students who choose this type of service. My vision is that of a world where students add in large numbers the “mobility” to their curriculum and those who benefit from an “easy” and professional welcome are more involved in their studies. This is a real factor of success.
