Student Life in France
Studying in a French university offers students an opportunity to socialise, understand and integrate with other students from across the globe. Collaborations on research, conferences and other events and activities, on and off-campus, allow for new experiences and interactions.
Excellent sports facilities are provided and encouraged in most colleges and universities, which usually become an integral and indispensable part of most students’ schedule.
Class timings in most universities are flexible. A wide range of schedules is usually provided to students, to choose from. This gives an opportunity for students to leverage their time management skills and plan their part-time work or other events in their schedule, to their advantage.
French law allows foreign students to work for 60% of the legal work year, as long as they have a student resident permit. There is also a minimum wage guaranteed by law. This allows international students to not just plan expenses accordingly, but also become familiar with a typical work environment and interact with individuals hailing from various cultures and backgrounds.
Being in France also allows students to visit the hugely famous tourist attractions, like the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, The Palace of Versailles, The Cathedral of Notre-Dame, amongst many more. France has a rich religious history to explore.
