France eyes UK model in university entry reforms

Jules Donzelot, a sociologist, has published an editorial in the newspaper Le Monde praising the UK’s advances in equality of access to higher education over the past 20 years.

In the article published on 11 September, Donzelot, an independent researcher who works with the EHESS grande école in Paris, said that France should follow the UK’s lead as it prepares to overhaul its system for university entry.

French education law stipulates that all university courses, excluding those run by grandes écoles, must be open to anyone who has passed the national exams taken at the end of secondary education.
