The world's most popular tourist destination is also a top location for postgraduate study abroad. A Masters in France will allow you to study at globally renowned universities whilst enjoying the excellent food, proud heritage and beautiful cities that have made the country internationally famous.
The French university system adopts a unique approach to higher education, with large numbers of smaller institutions sharing resources within local networks. This makes France an excellent place to complete postgraduate qualifications such as Masters degrees, which benefit from increased academic focus and specialisation.
France is also renowned for its prestigious (and highly selective) grandes ecoles and for its elite business schools (France was the first country to offer MBA programmes in Europe).
Wherever you study a Masters in France, you'll have the opportunity to experience a country renowned for its culture, cuisine and liberal values.
France attracts around 235,000 international students, making it the most popular non-anglophone study abroad destination in the world (and the third most popular overall). The capital, Paris, is also regularly voted the top student city worldwide.
French Masters degrees are two years long and the French academic year normally runs from September or October to June or July.
France is an affordable destination for postgraduate study, with tuition fees set by the government. At present the cost of a French Masters degree is €256 per year. Domestic and international students pay the same amount to study a Masters in France. For more information, see our detailed guide to Masters fees and funding in France.
France is proud of its language and culture and most university teaching in the country is carried out in French. However, increasing numbers of programmes are now being offered in English, particularly at the postgraduate level. Most French universities will also offer French language training and support to international students.
EU and EEA nationals are free to live and study a Masters in France, provided they register their presence on arrival in the country. Other international students will normally need to apply for a student visa - advice and assistance will be available from French embassies, as well as universities.
For more information on studying a Masters in France - including detailed advice on visas and immigration as well as information on the French university system - see our dedicated study guide.
