⦁ Higher education is thus provided by two main types of institution: universities, and “grandes écoles” Higher education in France is organized in three levels or grades which correspond to those of other European countries, facilitating international mobility:

⦁ Grandes écoles admit the graduates of the level Baccalauréat + 2 years of validated study (or sometimes directly after the Baccalauréat)

⦁ Universities admit all graduates of the Baccalauréat. Universities have defined number of European credits (ECTS). A student accumulates these credits which are generally transferable between paths. A License is awarded once 180 ECTS have been obtained. A Master is awarded once 120 additional credits have been obtained


Requirement for Undergraduate studies (first cycle)  is  Bachelor degrees at universities or equivalent and have passed the university entrance exam in their home country. In addition, if students  are applying for a study programme at an institute of technology, they should be ready to undertake a personal interview Requirement for Master’s studies (second cycle)  is to be in possession of a relevant bachelor’s or equivalent degree diploma.

Requirements for studies at French Grandes Écoles: Students seeking to study at a French Grande École must hold a baccalauréat or equivalent diploma and they are ranked according to the results obtained at very competitive entrance examinations.

Some Universities don’t require an IELTS, but will contact an admission interview through skype or telephonic


This visa is for most international students coming to France (except for students from Algeria whose immigration procedure is subject to a special system). This visa is normally for one year and renewable for longer study programmes..

All students have to demonstrate that they have an offer of admission from a French institution, sufficient subsistence funds (equivalent to the French bursary levels of around €615/month) as well as the appropriate linguistic skills to succeed in their studies.

Students should register online on www.india.campusfrance.org. Once they have registered online and filled the “CampusFrance form”, email the file number (Example IN123456) to the nearest CampusFrance office for verification of the entries. Once approved, student should take  appointment with a CampusFrance Education Advisor  Request an appointment from the CampusFrance office for the academic interview with the Education Advisor, for which students will have to appear in person and furnish ALL mandatory documents (originals + one set of photocopies along with fee ). The set of photocopies will be attested against the originals and returned to students at the end of the interview.

Students should then take an appointment with the French Consulate  As soon as student receives an appointment for the academic interview from the CampusFrance office, they may request an appointment for the consular interview at the French Consulate through VFS France  and visa application is forwarded to  the Consulate General of France in New Delhi for Final approval. The duration of the entire process varies from two weeks to a month depending on the time of year

Note: CampusFrance interview and Consulate appointment are two distinct procedures. CampusFrance is not in charge of the visa and therefore cannot be held responsible for its issuance or refusal.


France has numerous housing options available to students,
Student residences : Student accommodation in public universities are managed by the Centre Régional des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires (CROUS). CROUS accommodation are a real economical option and some universities have the possibility of reserving rooms for international Masters students so ask the “service de l’hébergement” (the accommodation service university).

Individual rooms in halls of residence : single room with shared facilities (bathroom, kitchen and study space). This type of accommodation allows students to apply for the “allocation de logement social”, a means-based social accommodation allowance.

Student flats : Individual rented flat, which provides all facilities


All international students are allowed to work provided they are registered with a French institution and have a student status as defined by the French social security authorities. The regulations limit student work to 964 hours per year (or 60% of the normal annual hours in France). Minimum salary in France is €9.40/hour before tax (around 20%)..


Students who have earned at least a master’s degree or the equivalent may apply for a one-time (nonrenewable) temporary residency authorization (APS, autorisation provisoire de séjour) valid for 12 months beyond the date of expiration of the student’s residency permit.
