You have chosen France for your studies
France is an intellectual country endowed with scientific excellence with prestigious institutions, with a great cultural and artistic influence and rich in an incomparable history and culture. In addition, 76% of you believe that France has a stable and efficient economy.
In general, you choose France for the quality of your training, the learning of the French language, the reputation of its Grandes Ecoles et Universités and teachers, the value of diplomas, but above all it is the French culture that is one of France's strong points for you.
A sometimes complicated welcome...
Even if it shows that France's cultural influence is your main attraction, studying in our country presents certain complexities:
Complexity of administrative procedures.
Administrative procedures are not dematerialized and it is often difficult to apply for social assistance from our organisations, CROUS, CAF or social security when you have not opened a bank account in France beforehand.
The cost of living is high, particularly the cost of housing
which most of the time represents more than half of your budget.
This cost is reinforced by the requirements required by the owners (high guarantees, advance rents, guarantors).
Student residences are still too few and often very expensive and the possibilities of access to Crous accommodation are very limited since there are only a few rooms for your many requests and you must be a "scholarship holder" to be eligible.
Lack of support reflected in a sense of isolation
Students in international mobility may be confronted with a feeling of isolation, induced by distance, but also for some of you, a lack of mastery of the French language that prevents the development of immediate social ties.
