"Many prospective students are unaware that you no longer need to be fluent in French to study in France"

In a promotional blog, CampusFrance said the tour would allow students to get information on France’s 600 English taught courses, which range from summer courses to full degree programmes and “cross all disciplines”. Students can also meet with 25 participating institutions including SKEMA, Ecole d’Ingénieur ECE Paris and Universitié de Toulouse.

“France is currently the third most popular destination for international students,” claimed the organisation. “Yet many prospective students are unaware that you no longer need to be fluent in French to study in France.”

France offers the fifth highest number of English-taught masters in non-English speaking Europe

A recent report from the Institute of International Education found France offered the fifth highest number of English-taught Masters in non-English speaking Europe, with 350 courses – up from just 11 in 2007.

Agents have told The PIE News that Indian students are increasingly looking to affordable European destinations with English-medium teaching, as they look to economise due a persistently low rupee and face tougher border control in the UK.

Indian enrolments at German institutions climbed 24% in 2011. France could also grow in appeal, given its English-taught programmes are overwhelmingly offered in business and economics and engineering and technology – big draw subjects for Indian students.

The Campus France tour will run from September 30 to October 7 and cover Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai.
