INTRODUCTION TO STUDYING IN FRANCE

France is a country of diverse geography. From a picturesque countryside, to pearl white benches, the wine-growing valleys of Loire to the snow-capped peaks of the Alps, France can easily be called the best place to study for foreign nationals. International students studying in France will benefit from the huge array of student discounts on offer, particularly in the many arts venues throughout the country. Those who study abroad in France will find themselves in one of the world's leading destinations for foreign students, with more than 245,000 international students choosing to study there every year. This demand stems from the perceived quality of its higher-education institutions. Five French universities are featured in the 2010 QS World University Rankings.

The traditionally high quality of French degrees is rooted in a network of internationally renowned research centers and institutions of higher education, of which there are more than 3,000, including 87 universities, 240 engineering schools, and 230 business schools, plus 2,000 other establishments devoted to such fields as art, fashion, design, architecture, paramedical training and so on.

One of the features of the French higher education system is that it includes a very wide range of institutions, each with its own objectives, structures and admission requirements. What's more, no distinction is made in France between French and international students: the entrance requirements and admission fees for foreign student admissions and French nationals are the same and the degrees are identical.

Universities in France, and many specialized postsecondary schools, are located throughout the country. Not surprisingly, most courses in France are taught in French, but you'll have ample opportunities to learn or practice other European languages - English, in particular. Advanced English is taught in many programs, especially in business and engineering.

Studying abroad in France is commonplace at all academic levels, providing your existing qualifications are recognized by the establishment concerned. French universities have developed reciprocal arrangements with similar institutions in many countries to facilitate international student exchanges. Other educational institutions, including some of France's prestigious grandes ecoles, also offer study abroad programs.
