Studying in France: Autumn Education Fair ’16

Students are invited to register at to book 20-minute individual interviews with the institutes of their choice. Registration is free and all are welcome.

New Delhi, 27 September 2016

Campus France India, France’s national agency for higher studies, is pleased to announce the Study in France – Autumn Education Fair ’16 which will take place in four metropolitan cities across India: Chandigarh (29th September), Chennai (1st October), Bangalore (3rd October) and Kochi (5th October).

This large-scale event brings together Indian students from all fields face-to-face with over 30 top French B-Schools, Engineering schools and specialized schools (Law, Design, Hotel Management) and is a reflection of the French government’s commitment (through its Embassy in India, the Institut français India, Campus France, and Alliance Française) to increasing Indian students’ mobility to France.

Students are invited to register at to book 20-minute individual interviews with the institutes of their choice. Registration is free and all are welcome.

At the event, students will receive free one-to-one counselling with experienced education advisers and academia from top French institutions. A PhD stand will also provide aspiring doctoral students information on enrolment and funding. Parallel sessions in the form of presentations and talks by experts will provide first-hand information on study requirements for graduate and post-graduate courses, accommodation and scholarships offered by the French government. Indian alumni will also share their experiences to showcase the excellence of French education and the opportunities that come with it.

H.E. Mr Alexandre Ziegler, Ambassador of France to India, says, “Student mobility is an essential way to bring the people of France and India closer. We are delighted that Indian students choose France and we want to welcome many more. These Education Fairs organised bi-annually are a great way to bring useful information and inspire students keen on study and career opportunities in France.”

Location details of the Autumn Education Fair ’16 and the list of the participating institutions can be found below.

The French Embassy in India is also launching the France Alumni network in India for former students who serve as brand ambassadors for both India and France for career development opportunities. A digital platform, will foster a thriving community, where alumni stay closely connected, get acquainted with French companies operating in India and gain valuable insights from the economic and professional world.


France is among the top three most popular destinations worldwide for international students and Paris was voted as the “best international student city” by the QS team in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 – no surprise, considering its numerous internationally high-ranked institutions and the quality of life in the capital of France. International students often enjoy extensive access to leading academics, with small class sizes and intensive teaching, and that, too, at low fees. Through several programs dedicated to support the mobility and training of students, including PhD programs, France is an increasingly popular destination for Indian students.

Major gateway to Europe’s work and business culture, France also ranks third among the world’s most innovative countries (the top one in Europe). France’s engineering and business schools fare extremely well in European rankings. With their international faculty and student bodies, French institutes enable Indian students to develop their own international networks of contacts and, at the same time, build a strong sense of European business culture. The language barrier is no more: English is widely used as a teaching medium, with more than 1,000 courses taught in English at the Master’s and, increasingly, at the Bachelor’s levels.

The Indian student community is growing fast: last year, nearly 4,000 Indian students joined France to pursue higher education, a jump of 100% over the past five years.

To encourage this trend, the Embassy of France grants 5-year short-stay visas to all Indian alumni who hold a master’s or any post-graduate degree of French institutes. Graduates also have the opportunity to stay on in France for up to a year after the completion of their course and find employment there.

This year, the Embassy offered nearly 400 scholarships under its flagship “Charpak” programme for students pursuing Master’s degrees, exchange semesters and research internships. Indian students also received scholarships, including tuition fee waivers and a monthly stipend, from French companies, such as MBDA.

Indian alumni with French degrees are provided many job offers in India, as well. More than 1,000 French companies have set up operations in India, and are constantly on the look-out for international talent.

Following the Chandigarh-Chennai-Bengaluru-Kochi autumn tour, Campus France will also hold a Winter Education Fair in more cities in India, including Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.
