WHY STUDY IN FRANCE?
- France is one of the European leaders in scientific and technological innovations. Today France is the world’s fourth largest economy and second largest exporter of services. The successes of France’s scientists, engineers, and designers are known around the world through Airbus, the TGV (high-speed train), the Ariane rocket, the discovery of the human immune-deficiency virus, high fashion, luxury goods, fine food and wine, and much more.
- France is one of the main European countries hosting foreign students. At present, about 190,000 international students (10 percent of French postsecondary enrolments) have chosen France for all or part of their higher education. They enrich the French system with their culture, experience, energy, and accomplishments.
- Studying in France rarely means studying only in France. Many if not most schools have added European components to their programs, offering courses on Europe or internships elsewhere in the European Union. Students have the opportunity to enrich their French experience with new discoveries and experiences.
- France is the centre of Europe, Thus, it is an ideal place for the student who wants to explore Europe. It’s easy, really easy, to reach most of Europe’s important cities (plus hundreds not so important but still worth the trip). Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona, Munich or Milan – all await you for the weekend or for a longer stay.
- One big benefit of studying in France is the opportunity to live in the place that invented savoir-vivre—the art of living well. Did you know that France is the most visited country in the world? The French people are proud of their cultural heritage, lovely countryside, quiet towns, and fine restaurants—all of which they’re eager to share with visitors.
- French higher education has a long tradition of openness and accessibility. No distinction is made between French and international students – under French law, the requirements for admission are the same, as are the degrees awarded.
- The quality of the country’s educational system is a source of pride for the French people, acting together through their national and regional governments. France devotes fully 20 percent of its annual budget to education. The central government closely monitors the quality of instruction as well as the curricular content of the country’s national diplomas. For French and international students alike, the government subsidizes a very large part of the cost of instruction in France’s universities and other public institutions. Thus, the education is free in France, even for foreign students.
- French is spoken by 200 million people around the world. It is the official language of 32 countries on 5 continents. The three capitals of the European Union—Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg—are French speaking cities. In EU institutions, French, German, and English are the working languages. French is also one of the two working languages of the United Nations, one of the official languages of the International Olympic Committee, and one of the official languages of the African Union. In addition to that, French is a beautiful and romantic language.
