If all of the things that we’ve already told you about France were not enough, what if we told you that the country has one of the most prestigious educational systems in the world, as well? Whether you are an individual seeking undergraduate studies, postgraduate schooling or something else, an amazing education can easily be found in the country. No matter what region that you go to there are numerous universities and educational institutions offering world-class education for people far and wide. There is a reason that so many people choose to come to France to receive their education and when it is the best education that you require, it is well worth your time to look at the colleges and universities that are available throughout the country.
As a student at one of these institutions you can rest assured that you will receive an amazing education, while also enjoying the many other things that are to be loved in the country. The universities in France offer students the chance to attend their institutions, on a full and part time basis, with a number of class schedules and courses available. These courses will all vary by the college, as well the times that you can attend. However, it is quite easy to find something that accommodates your schedule and allows you to go to university in your own time.
Some of the universities in France may also offer their students the chance to complete some of their courses at home via their own computer. This is again something that you should check with the university concerned, as not all of them will offer this option. Additionally, it may not be offered for all courses or for all subjects.
It is a French tradition to welcome foreign students from all across the world. Since the Middle Ages, and the birth of La Sorbonne, the first French University, which occurred more than 800 years ago, students from all across Europe have come to France to study, especially in the areas of theology, medicine and law.
But people are not just coming from Europe any longer. Many students from the USA to attend college in France. There are also a growing percentage of college enrollees from other countries as well. People come to France to get their education because they know what kind of system awaits them. France is keen on providing top of the line education in all subjects and to all students. This is a true statement no matter what university you plan to attend.
No matter what country you are coming from, you can expect to be welcomed with open arms. There is so much diversity in France. It is one of the things that keeps the country such an amazing place to be for all. It is always nice to know that you will fit right in with the crowd when you arrive. No one will question the fact that it can be hard to be the new kid on the block. If you are coming from another nation and culture and are unaware of the country and know no one, it can be far scarier. Knowing that no matter where you choose to go in France you can rest assured that you are going to be welcomed and feel right at home, really is a tremendous boon.
The French government introduced a vigorous support policy in 1998 welcoming foreign students into French educational institutions. The policy was introduced and followed through by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs along with the Ministry of Education and is made up of four different components. These four components are:
Applying for a position at a higher education institution in France is easy, with foreign students having the ability to apply to as many as 20 different universities with one single application on the web. Since you are unable to apply to colleges in person when you are in another country, this is something that can make it much easier on all students wishing to enroll in a French university. You will also find it fairly simple to browse the colleges that are available in France with the help of the web. All colleges in France have a website that you can visit. When you visit the website of the university that you are interested in, you can learn so much about them and determine if it is a good fit for your specific needs.
France has more than 3,500 institutions of higher education, including the following:
Students wishing to attend a French educational institution for higher learning will find there are a good number of financial opportunities awaiting them to make attending university easier. Both loans and grants are available to students who qualify for the money. Additionally, the French government offsets some of the costs of attending university in the country, making it a wise financial choice to attend a college in France. Tuition costs in the country are far lower than in other areas. Combined with the remarkable institutions and learning capabilities in the country, studying in France has a plethora of advantages and benefits that are sure to be appreciated.
The average cost of attending a French institution is 186 EUR for first year degrees and 255 EUR for a master’s degree. These figures are accurate for the 2012-2013 school year. Again the actual amount of tuition cost will vary according to the numerous factors that we’ve already discussed. These costs are far less than what is found at many other universities and colleges around the world, all for one of the best educations in the world.
Individuals choose France for their educational needs for a number of very good reasons. Because the French are so adamant about being able to offer students the highest educational standards, you can always count on your chosen college and program to be among the best that you can find anywhere in the world. The people of France take their education exceptionally seriously, and it shows in the education that you can find across the country. Plenty of money is spent on education in France, and if getting the prime education that you want and need is important to you, studying in France is definitely the perfect option.
It is often said that the who’s who of elite futures choose France to attain their education. Engineers, military leaders and many others all turn to the prime education system in France to acquire their knowledge of the industry. They turn to the colleges in the country because they know the fantastic learning opportunities that await them when they do.
Small tutorial sizes and heavy instructor intervention are two of the positive attributes that you will find while attending a college in France. Smaller class sizes and involved instructors mean that you have the time and the attention needed to learn, ask questions and get the help that you are seeking. Many colleges in other countries have overcrowded classrooms and it is often hard to find the personalized attention that you need to make the most out of your educational experience. This is not the case with the college and universities that are located in France.
There are so many different colleges in France, each of which can hold solid grounds on providing their students the education they deserve. No matter where you are at in the world you can rest assured that France has the education that you want. This is why so many turn their needs to the country.
French universities are open to all “bacheliers”, or a student whom has passed their baccalaureate. However, while some types of degree course are open to everyone who may be interested, often, courses in certain arts faculties, social sciences, science and medical courses are usually available and open to students who have passed a stricter scientific baccalaureate.
Along with the costs of tuition in France, you also need to keep in mind the many other factors that affect the money that you will spend while in college. This includes costs of renting accommodation, food, entertainment, supplies, tests and miscellaneous fees. This is money that you absolutely need to budget for in advance. The last thing that you want to do is to get to France and not have the money that you need.
You can easily calculate these costs and determine the true amounts that are needed to attend a college in the country. There are many ways in which this can be done. Take a look on the Internet and learn what the costs of things are in France. If you are coming from the U.S., you can certainly expect the costs of living to be fairly comparable or perhaps even a little less than what you’re used to paying back home. Coming from the United Kingdom, you will soon learn that France is considerably cheaper than back home. This is something that you will enjoy as cash may not always come easy when you are attending college.
Make sure that you take the time to do this as you do not want to arrive on the scene and find yourself in for a shock over the high costs of attending university.
Additionally, it is required that you provide this proof if you are an international student. It is estimated that the average student will need to have around 430 EUR per month to survive while attending school in France. This equals about 5,160 EUR per year. This is a low estimate, however, and you should always plan to have a little more than what is determined that you will need.
The average tuition costs for attending a college in France will vary according to the school that you wish to attend, the courses that you are taking, whether you are a resident of the EU or a foreign student and other information. The average rates for tuition vary from about 150 EUR per term to 900 EUR per term. Again this amount varies and is based on a number of factors. If you are looking to attend a college that is low cost it is in your best interest to compare your options before you begin.
There are a number of grants and scholarships available from the French to citizens wishing to continue their education in France. The number of funds, trusts and grants available for international students is much less. There are several different options that are available including French Government grants, grants by the Government of a native country or aid from international and non-Governmental organizations. Financial aid in France can be awarded to a student based on the need for the help or merit.
There is a charge for the Visa application and you must also have a passport that is valid for a period of three months past your expiration date of the requested party. You must complete an application that you sign and must submit three photographs with the application. If you are a student under the age of 18, your parent or guardian must sign the application. You will also need to inform the application that you are intending to attend college in France, as it is necessary to put the desired reason for the visa.
When completing your application for a France Visa it is essential that you complete the application in its entirety. You shouldn’t leave anything blank as this can greatly delay the application process. You also need to make sure that you have all of the documents that are needed and submit them with the application. Without these documents, your application may not be able to be processed, and again will delay the application.
It can take up to two months for a Visa application to be approved so you will want to submit all of the necessary information as quickly as possible before you plan to leave. If your Visa is issued you will receive it within a short time. A denied Visa will result in your passport being returned without the valid sticker for a Visa.
If you are applying for a long-term stay visa you must do all of the above as well as hold a travel passport that is valid for the duration of your stay. Again, there is an application fee to process the application and this is not returned even if your Visa application is denied.
