International students to get warmer welcome but higher fees

The French government has launched a programme to boost France’s attractiveness to international students, but also plans to greatly increase their fees.

Prime minister Édouard Philippe said in a speech on 19 November that the government’s goal was to have 500,000 students from outside the EU studying in France by 2027. At present roughly 320,000 non-EU students study at French universities.

Philippe said the government would set up a €5-million fund for universities to improve their capacity to welcome international students as part of a programme called Bienvenue en France.
