As an international cultural hub and home to world-renowned universities, France is a popular destination for international students to begin their careers. Academic excellence, cultural diversity, historical significance, and settlement possibilities make France the best choice among international students seeking to study abroad. Best Study abroad consultancies will provide proper guidance and admission services to get admission to the best institutions in France.
Studying in France has become a wise choice among international students looking to study abroad to broaden their horizons, gain a global perspective, and receive a high-quality education. Academic excellence from globally ranked and distinguished institutions, a diverse range of programs, affordability compared to other European countries, a wide range of research opportunities, a multicultural environment and historical richness are attracting more international students to France.
The French government has been executing the supporting policy since 1998 to welcome international students into French educational institutions. Recently French Government has introduced a five-year post-study visa for Indian students pursuing Master’s programs in French higher educational institutions. This move has opened the door to a wide range of opportunities for Indian students who are looking to study abroad. As India is the largest sending country of international students and French Government has provided opportunities for five years stay back after successful post-graduation, the demography of international student mobility would be changed, and France will be the largest destination for international students from India.
According to official data, around 10,000 students from India chose France as their study destination in 2019. As the post-study work policy has changed for Indians, the number of Indian students is expected to be increased high, especially for post-graduation programs. Before, a two-year post-study visa was offered for Indian students who have completed their post-graduation successfully.
France has more than 3,500 institutions of higher education. English-taught programs have increased in large numbers recently. France is marked as the most popular non-English speaking country among international students and holds the prominent position of students’ mobility after the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia. This initiative of the French government to provide five years’ work visa will be a turning point in the history of international student mobility to France.
