French Education and Top Universities

Updated: Jul 5, 2021

France offers vivid range of courses for students who wish to pursue higher education in this country. There are over 3,000 public universities to choose from. These universities specialize in various fields of study such as political studies, economics, engineering, design, business and more.

University system in France

France has a dual university system of higher education – the Universités and the Grandes Ecoles. The higher education system has the usual public universities and the Grandes Écoles, something very few non-French people have heard of. Grandes Ecoles are extremely prestigious and selective and admit only a few hundred students each year.

Tuition Fee

The French government has introduced several policies that make it easy for foreign students to study undergraduate studies in France, as it subsidizes education at all levels. While students are required to contribute to the cost of tuition, rates are relatively low. Private schools, particularly engineering and business schools, can be more expensive, with tuition rates similar to equivalent programs in other European countries.

Student Lifestyle

The location of the school has an impact on the cost of living. Students can enjoy affordable tuition and knowledgeable professors in one of the most beautiful, culturally rich nations in the world. Some French universities are very popular as they offer plenty of programs taught in English.
