Benefits Of Studying In France

What makes France an attractive study abroad destination for Indian students? This article shall give you an overview of the scholarships, career opportunities, and much more that France offers to those who choose to pursue their undergraduate degree there.  

France ranks among the top most popular study destinations for international students. Why is France so attractive? Because it offers world-class education opportunities in top-ranked institutions in a country that is the 7th global economy, the most innovative in Europe and is famous for its lifestyle and culture.

France is the first country to have signed a mutual recognition agreement with India in 2018. This Agreement promotes excellence in higher education through cooperation and exchanges between Indian and French universities. Since then, educational qualifications from India are recognised by the French government and vice-versa.

Career Opportunities

Studying in France can give a good head start to your career. Here’s how.

Visa Policies | France has adopted very attractive visa policies for students and alumni. Stay back visas are offered to students with a master's degree or PhD. They can benefit from an up to two-year visa, which gives them a chance to gain work experience or even start their own company.

Job Opportunities | Professional opportunities can also be found in over 1000 French companies that are present in India with a total investment stock of almost 20 billion dollars. They alone account for the generation of 3.5 lakh skilled jobs spread all over India across corporate headquarters, factories, and research centers in most Indian states. And of course, many Indian companies are eager to recruit Indian alumni from France, because they know they are among the best.

Talent Passport | In February 2016, France introduced a new type of multi-year residence permit with a validity of four years, called the “Talent Passport”. This is for skilled people coming from other countries who wish to stay in France.

The “Talent Passport” is particularly designed for artists, scientists, researchers, figures of international renown, and the likes of these. Students who go to France to study are able to obtain this passport more easily, and thus boost France's appeal with their energy and talent. Spouses too can benefit from the Talent Passport and are allowed to work in France.
