Admission to a French University
Tuesday 17 March 2009
Those of you with a child who has attended a French secondary school may well be considering a French University for their higher education studies.
Whilst French universities do not have a particularly good international reputation, you will find that tuition fees are low, and there are grants available for those on low incomes.
However, it is quite a complex structure, distinguished by a diversity of institutions, courses, organisational arrangements, and admission requirements. The system of financial support to students is also Byzantine.
If your child is proposing to attend a French University next September, then they need to make application by 20th March.
