Why study in France
One of the world’s best education systems
The French “Grandes Ecoles” centralize the most prestigious teaching in specialized areas, mainly in business and engineering. The level is exceptionally high and graduates usually go on to fill high flying positions in the employment market. The country is also home to globally recognizable education brands, such as La Sorbonne, Sciences Po or Les Gobelins to name a few.
A globally recognized degree.
Institutions are consistently ranked among the world’s best and graduates are very much sought after by companies around the world. Thanks to the Bologna system, France issues qualifications (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate) that are in line with official European and worldwide standards.
Affodable Tuition Fees
Education in state run universities is free, even for international students. However, the country‘s most famous education providers are mostly privately run. If your aim is to integrate one of France’s best private engineering or business schools, the average annual cost of tuition ranges between 4,000€ and 10,000€.
Apart from Paris, one of the world’s most beautiful and visited cities, France offers an unbelievable diversity of climates and landscapes. You can ski in the Alps, sail in Brittany ’s rough seas, savour the wine of the Bordeaux area or enjoy the sun across the Mediterranean coast. In 2012, QS World University Rankings selected Paris as the world’s Best Student City, taking into account the quality of life, the cost of living and global degree recognition, amongst other things.
Master one of the world’s most spoken languages
French is the 2th most spoken language in the world after English. It is spoken fluently across Europe but also in areas as far apart as Africa and South East Asia.
