Flexible range of programs in different countries

 

We believe in creating opportunities that will help students achieve their full potential. By supporting a diverse range of educational programs, we strive to help young people to achieve the skills, tools and experiences to develop their potential, ultimately enriching themselves and the broader community around them.

In a changing global environment, students need to develop the knowledge, skills and perspectives required to live, work and communicate as professionals and citizens. Recognizing that this is part of a quality 21st century education, there are some top universities striving to bring an international dimension to their teaching, research and community outreach activities.

Through a wide variety of initiatives, ranging from new approaches to existing courses to activities extending beyond the campus boundaries, students are becoming more active players in ensuring that they have the international knowledge and cultural exposure to be successful in a more global world.

There are Universities that are leaders in integrating international placements in their cooperative education programs. They have succeeded to have their co-op placements from international students, because of their quality of educations and marketing technique. Through our best educated consolers and establishing good relations with the universities in the following countries we have been succeeded to leads in the region for placing students in the right universities. You can select the countries that you would like to continue your education to get more acquainted with the main factors of educational condition in those countries.

Academic calendar, course types and grading system

The academic year is divided into two semesters, which are generally running from September to May-June.

There is no regular Summer semester for universities/”grandes écoles”.

SOME KEY DATES

Mid-September – administrative and pedagogical registration
October – classes begin
December –Christmas holidays (two weeks)
February - mid-terms (les partiels)
April – spring break
June – final exams
June 21 – first day of summer, you receive your marks; congratulations, if you passed; sorry, if you failed; do not miss the registration for the “make-up exams” in September.
October – ready for a new start?

French language courses follow the same calendar, provided that courses are offered in a Language Institute associated to university.

Language schools offer sessions of four weeks and up. The courses start at the beginning of each month.

COURSE TYPES

University courses fall into two categories:

LECTURES (cours magistraux) – they take place in large lecture halls (amphithéâtres) that can accommodate from 100 to 1000 students. There is no interaction between teacher-student during the lecture, there is a questions’ period at the end of the course. Students’ attendance is not checked.

TUTORIALS – students attend small classes of study sessions (travaux dirigés – TD) or tutorials (travaux pratiques – TP) that allow discussing and/or putting into practice the theoretical content of the lectures. Assistant professors or instructors generally conduct the TD and TP. The attendance is important.

WORTH KNOWING: With some exceptions, there is little continuous assessment carried out through the year and few intermediate examinations; students are mostly responsible for their progress throughout the year with a view to the final examinations.

GRADING SYSTEM VERSUS CREDITS SYSTEM

Traditionally the French academic system was based on the 0 to 20 grading system. Theoretically an average student was rated 11/20; a brilliant - 15/20. Practically most of the academic institutions had an average grade below 10; grades over 12/20 rated the best 10 to 15% of the class.

A Canadian student translated the French grading system as follows:

Grade Explanation

6-7 NOT UNHEARD of, not wonderful
8-9 OK, don’t panic
10 Class AVERAGE
11-12 GOOD mark, you have done some hard work
13-14 GREAT, well above average
15-16 TOP of the class
17-19 Almost UNHEARD of
20 NEVER

The creation of the European Union harmonized the different evaluation systems of higher education institutions throughout Europe . A common evaluation system has been developed, known as the European Credit Transfer System

( ECTS). It is based on the number of credits assigned for each course within an academic year. France has adopted the ECTS system.

A full academic year workload requires 60 ECTS
A semester workload requires 30 ECTS

Licence degree requires 180 ECTS
Master degree requires 300 ECTS

The French universities

Currently France ’s eighty-seven universities are spread throughout the country. Sixty-five of them are members of EduFrance.

The universities are public institutions, they offer general education programs. They award specific or national diplomas. The French Ministry of Education sets national standards to guarantee the uniformity of the academic curriculum and to facilitate student mobility.

French universities cover the entire range of academic disciplines, from Science to Technology, through Literature, Linguistics, French as a Second Language (FLE), Economics, Medical Studies and related disciplines, Athletics, etc. They may also include research centers, institutes, and laboratories.

Expenses for one academic year

France is one of the least expensive countries in Europe and students may enjoy many benefits. Some of these benefits include university restaurants (resto U), discounts on transportation, movies, shows, museums, housing for students holding a long-term student visa, part-time work opportunities.

MONEY

The French currency is now the Euro (€); it has been adopted by states that are members of the European Union.

Expenses will vary depending on the type of course you are registered for, duration of your stay, your financial comfort level, and your personal needs. Given the number of discounts available to students, the average monthly student budget can be approximately € 1.100 in Paris and € 800 in other cities.

TUITION FEES

University tuition is rarely more than € 300 per academic year. Tuition rates vary by program and by type of institution. In public schools of engineering, the annual tuition is approximately € 600. The range of tuition at other institutions, particularly business schools, is much wider. The French government supports higher education up to € 6.000 per student per year.

ACCOMMODATION

Unlike other countries, France does not have a tradition of large university campuses and the university residences are insufficient to accommodate the large number of students, both French and international.

- Campus accommodation costs from € 140 to 400 per month, depending on the location and type of flat. A room in a private student residence can cost from € 500 to 700 per month.

- A room rented in a private home can vary from € 800 to 1.050 in Paris , half that rent elsewhere (accommodation is usually more expensive in Paris ).

Students having a residence permit (carte de séjour) could obtain financial assistance for housing.

TRANSPORTATION

A monthly public transportation pass in Paris costs between € 50 to 140, depending on transportation zones.

HEALTH INSURANCE

All students under the age of 28 who are registered in a program for more than 4 months can benefit from the national student health plan. The annual subscription is € 180 per year. Generally you are reimbursed up to 80% of your medical expenses, including also the pharmacy expenses. For a better medical insurance, you can subscribe to complementary student insurance plans (mutuelles étudiantes).

ENTERTAINMENT

It varies widely from person to person, but a student would pay around € 3 a meal at the university restaurant, € 6 - 7 for a movie ticket, € 140 for a train return ticket Paris – Nice.

Monetary unit:

pound sterling (£).

Expenses for one academic year

Institutions decide whether it is appropriate for fees to be charged at the ‘home’ rate or the higher ‘overseas’ rate. Students who meet residency conditions in the United Kingdom and Islands for a specified three-year period before their course will be classified as ‘home’ students if they are settled in the United Kingdom, i.e., resident in the United Kingdom with no restriction on how long they can stay. Students unable to meet these criteria may be charged fees at the higher ‘overseas’ rate unless they meet conditions applying to one of six limited categories. These relate to European Union nationals and their children, European Economic Area migrant workers and their spouses and children, refugees and their families, exchange students and certain people who have lived in Hong Kong and have recently settled here. Students unable to meet residency criteria because of the temporary employment abroad of themselves, one of their parents or their spouse will be treated as ‘home’ students by institutions.

Immigration requirements

A person seeking leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom as a

Student must produce evidence that he has been accepted on a Course of study at a publicly funded institutions of further or higher education, a bona fide private education institution which maintains satisfactory records of enrolment and attendance, or an independent fee paying school outside the maintained sector. The course should either be a recognized full-time degree course at a publicly funded institution of further or higher education, a weekday full-time course involving attendance at a single institution for a minimum of 15 hours organized daytime study per week of a single subject or directly related subjects, or a full-time course of study at an independent fee-paying school. A student must be able to meet the costs of his course, and the accommodation and maintenance of him or her and any dependants, without taking employment, engaging in business or having recourse to public funds. He or she must also not intend to engage in business or to take employment, except part time or vacation work undertaken with the consent of the Secretary of State for Education and Employment. Nationals of those countries whose citizens require a visa to enter the United Kingdom need to obtain entry clearance before traveling.

Applications may be made at the nearest British diplomatic post overseas. Overseas students who wish to take part-time or vacation employment need to apply to their local Job centre for permission. This will apply whether the work is paid or unpaid. Normally the Job centre will only give permission to work for up to a maximum of 20 hours per week in term time, and only if they are satisfied that no resident labor will be displaced. This provision is not designed to enable a student to meet the maintenance and accommodation requirement of the Rules and any prospective earnings will not be taken into account when assessing the adequacy of funds available.
