Salut, mon ami! Welcome to the rich, cultural landscape of France. Find yourself dazzled by the cuisine, the dancing, the art, and the music – all while you learn the French language. Thousands of people take their holiday in France every year to enjoy the wine and the relaxed lifestyle, if only for a short period of time. But, why not extend that holiday, and learn something while you’re at it? These days, universities in France are starting to offer plenty of English-taught degree options for Master’s and Bachelor’s students all over the world. From its long history in science, literature, art, and history, France has plenty of exciting options for international students. But French education is also about innovation and you are going to find many English-taught degrees related to Business, Science and Tech as well. So, when you’re dreaming of walking dreamily around the The River Seine, or making your home in the Château de Versailles, then why not go to France for your study abroad adventure? Why Study in France? Institutions and universities in France stand out for having small classes, allowing instructors to give you a lot of extra time and attention. Moreover, several universities are specialised and designed to teach within a specific subject area. So, in a major city, like Paris, students will find lots of universities and grandes écoles that are either focused on research or job training. Recently, France has joined alongside other European countries in offering lots of English-taught degree options for Master’s and Bachelor’s students. So, now students no longer need to be intimidated by the French language and can actually manage to successfully study at a French university. Of course, you’re still encouraged to learn French upon your arrival. Ordering wine and talking about fine art is so much more sophisticated in Le français.

To study in English at one of the universities in France, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.

  • I had to take a language test and chose for IELTS as you will get your results after 13 days. I also found out that there are a lot of webpages meant to help you get ready for the test.

  • I did the IELTS. It took more or less one month to prepare it on my own by practicing with helpful exercises and exam simulations on the official website.

  • I have chosen IELTS, because it is cheaper and reflects more what you can deal with than how you can circle the grammar closed questions. I liked that test, because you can handle the topics of the two essays there as you wish.

  • More than 800 British Council test locations
  • Accepted by more than 10,000 organisations
  • More than 3.5 million tests taken last year
