Campus France’s catalog of postsecondary programs taught in English includes nearly 1200 programs designed for English-speaking students.

France's success in attracting students from around the world reflects not only the excellence of higher education in France, but also the quality of daily life, the variety and richness of French culture, and the easy access to the rest of Europe students enjoy while earning their degree.

France is the first non-english speaking country for recruiting foreign students, and provides a wide offer of trainings taught in English. It is thus no longer needed to be fluent in French to study in France. Studies to obtain a degree are completed by French classes, an additional asset in an international carreer, since it paves the way to 75 French-speaking countries.
