The schooling system in France is centralized, and is composed of three stages, primary education, secondary education, and higher education. Higher education is divided between public universities and the prestigious and selective Grandes écoles, such as Sciences Po Paris for Political studies, HEC Paris for Economics, Poly technique and the École nationale supérieure des mines de Paris that produce high-profile engineers, or the École nationale d'administration for careers in the Grands Corps of the state. The Grandes écoles have been criticised for alleged elitism.
France provides one of the finest research opportunities and facilities to the international students.

For the third time in six years, Campus France employed Kantar Sofres for a quantitative study regarding the "image and attractiveness of France to international students". Like for previous studies in 2011 and 2013, the survey covers questions in relation with the decision process, the satisfaction level of the stay and the benefits of the experience. Questions were added in 2017 to assess the impact of the Brexit, the election of US president Trump and the election of French president Macron, but also to assess the reputation and interest for France Alumni. The qualities in relation with France and French higher education tend to continue and even increase.
  • 9 international students out of 10 recommend France as studies destination (90% in 2011; 91% in 2013; 92% in 2017).
  • 9 international students out of 10 are satisfied of their stay in France of which 52% are "very satisfied"(43% in 2011; 41% in 2013).
  • Over 88% of students who studied in France are satisfied of the value of their diploma and the quality of education (over 85% in 2011; over 86% in 2013).
Tuition Fee (EUR €) The government sets annual tuition rates at public institutions. The introduction of differentiated enrollment fees for non-EU students will enable the sustainable financing of measures for the improvement of hospitality measures. It will also enable the financing of scholarships and exemptions aimed at the best students applying to study in France. Which students will pay the differentiated enrollment fees? Differentiated enrollment fees will affect non-EU students:
  • enrolling for the 1st time for a Bachelor's or Master's degree, or for an engineering program , for the start of the 2019/2020 academic year ;
  • within a higher education institution that falls within the scope of the MESRI ;
  • Provided that they are not permanently settled in France.
What will be the amount of the differentiated enrollment fees?
  • 2,770 Euros for one year studying within a Bachelor's program or one year within an integrated (or related) preparatory cycle for an engineering degree.
  • 3,770 Euros for one year studying within a Master's program or one year within an engineering program.
