Tuition Fees in France
Not only do you get a world-class education in France – the tuition fees at public universities are relatively modest. Citizens and permanent residents of EEA countries and Switzerland can study tuition-free (except for an immatriculation charge of around 200 euros per year), whereas students from outside Europe will have to pay around 3,000 to 4,000 euros per year at public universities. Private universities usually charge more, up to 20,000 euros annually.
Working in France After Graduation
To stay in France after graduation, Non-European students must have a promise of employment or a work contract and remuneration at least equal to one and a half times the legal minimum wage (2,200 euros gross per month in 2017).
Without a promise of employment, a non-European foreign graduate can apply for a Temporary Residence Permit valid for Twelve months and non-renewable while looking for a job in France. For this, you must have a professional license or a master’s degree or have a business creation project.
The French language is also one of the larger hurdles if you plan to stay after your graduation from a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in France. To find a job, you will almost inevitably need to be fluent or at least near-fluent in French. Other than that, when compared to other countries in Europe, it is relatively easy for international students to start their career in France after graduation.
