For the quality of its system of higher education

France's higher education system is not only one of the best in the world—it's also open to all!

The quality of French higher education is widely recognized throughout the world. French institutions figure prominently in the Shanghai Classification of Universities, in the rankings of the Financial Times and Times Higher, and in the European Report on Science and Technologies published by the European Commission.

Each year, France makes massive investments in education and research. In fact, education is the largest category of government spending, accounting for more than 20% of the budget.

"French successes in manufacturing, technology, and science (space, transportation, medicine, mathematics), and the number of Nobel prizes and Field medals that French citizens bring home, demonstrate that France is one of the world's most dynamic centers of innovation and research.

In France, higher education programs are grounded in accredited research laboratories or the knowledge of seasoned professionals: whatever your field of study, you will always be in contact with renowned experts.

For the international flavor of the country's higher education system

Each year more than 278,000 international students choose France for their higher education.

The world's fifth-largest economy, France is also the fourth most popular destination for international students. The country remains committed to its long-standing policy of equal treatment for domestic and international students. Some examples of that policy: Tuition rates at French institutions are identical for all students. For programs leading to national diplomas, tuition rates are set by law. All students, regardless of origin, enjoy the same benefits (health coverage, housing assistance).

France spends about 1.2% of its gross domestic product on higher education—about €20 billion annually. Financing for higher education is predominantly public (87%). France's spending for higher education represents an investment of about €10,800 per student, including international students.

With  278,000 international students  (12% of the country's total postsecondary enrollment), including 25,000 doctoral candidates, France is the world's fourth-largest host country after the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

France's institutions award degrees that adhere to the common European architecture known as LMD (for Licence, Master, abd Doctorate). French diplomas are therefore recognized and accepted throughout the world.

For many students, studying in France means an opportunity to learn French or to extend one's command of the language. Doing so allows them to join a global community of 250 million speakers of language of Voltaire, Hugo, and Camus, an official language of the Olympics, the United Nations, and the European Union.

"In France, international students of all nationalities enjoy the same rights and advantages as French students. In the last 10 years  the number of international students in France has grown by 75%!

To experience the unique French "art of living"

Studying in France also means joining a society rightly renowned for its practice of the "art of living." Did you know that France is the leading tourist destination in the entire world?

France is a relatively large country of immense geographic variety. Its health-care and transportation systems are second to none. France is also a safe and tolerant country.

"In France, you'll have access to a vast array of athletic, touristic, and cultural opportunities that your student discount makes very affordable.

"Many of France's institutions of higher education are found in city centers in immediate proximity to the vibrant social and cultural life of French cities. Museums, bookstores, cinemas, theaters, and cafes are always within easy reach.

For the power of French know-how

The high art of French craftsmanship

920,000 French businesses employing 10% of all French workeres produce the high-quality artisanal goods for which France is rightly famous.
France exports know-how in the graphic arts and 3D animation, as well as in the more traditional areas of fashion and textiles.

The country's postsecondary programs in woodworking, furniture-making, glass-blowing, masonry, ceramics, and perfumes, flavors, and essences are world famous.

The taste professions (gourmet cooking, bread-making, chocolate and pastry-making) are represented by some of the world's most famous names—Alain Ducasse, Paul Bocuse, and Pierre Gagnaire, to name just a few. The "taste of France" contributes in no small part to the country's international allure.

Sports and athletics

France has a long history of training athletic champions. The physical education sections of French secondary schools and the training centers affiliated with professional sports teams and athletic clubs train top-notch athletes in individual and team sports (swimming, figure skating, tennis, skiing, soccer, and basketball).

The excellent athletic facilities available in Paris and throughout France host world-class competitions, among them world cups in soccer and rugby, the winter olympics, and the Euro 2016 soccer tournament.
