why choose France?

According to the latest data from UNESCO, France is the 4th most popular choice for internationally mobile students after the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. France is also the first non-English-speaking country of choice in the rankings, just ahead of Germany.

More than 650 Pakistani students are currently studying in some of the top French higher education institutions including the Sorbonne University, Sciences Po, HEC Paris, University of Paris-Sud, University of Montpellier and more.

Here are some of the many reasons you should consider studying in France.

english-language programs

Knowledge of French is not a prerequisite (though a basic grasp of the language is highly recommended) for degrees taught in English. Over 1,500 programs are taught in English!

research leader

France offers cutting-edge science and research opportunities. The National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) is the world’s leading research organization (Nature Index, 2015). 41% of the doctoral candidates in France are from outside France.

affordable tuition rates

French public universities offer great value for money. Learn about attractive tuition rates for international students, including changes to tuition fees effective from the 2019 academic year.

international students

International students in France get discounts on housing, healthcare, transportation, and cultural activities like cinemas, museums and more. Plus, international students are eligible to work in France during and after their studies.


Funding—including fully and partially funded merit-based scholarships—is available from some French universities, the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, and the Embassy of France in Pakistan.

la vie française

Needless to say, France has a rich cultural life to offer. The world’s top tourist destination has some of the best culinary experiences, cinema, art exhibitions, festivals, monuments, historic towns, libraries and museums available anywhere.
