In a recent survey conducted by, of 1015 students from all over the world it has been revealed that a remarkable 79% of international students who come to France choose France as their choice for higher education due to the exceptional quality of education the country offers. The survey also found that Paris is the most popular city for international students, with 71% of respondents saying they would choose to study there.

In addition to its quality education, France also offers attractive career prospects for international students. 57% of respondents said that they were considering studying in France because of the career opportunities it offers. The survey also found that 66% of respondents expect to work part-time during their studies and 63% say they are planning to stay and work in France after their studies.

The most common source of finance for international students studying in France is self-funded study, followed by help from family. Scholarships are also a popular source of funding, with 44% of respondents indicating that they would be applying for one.

“The exceptional qualities of a French education are a great way to attract smart minds,” said Gerrit Bruno Blöss, CEO of “And the fact that a large share of students wants to work part-time while they study is a chance to successfully integrate them in the French labor market before graduation.”

France has seen a significant increase in the number of international students in recent years. In 2022, France recorded the highest growth in international students in over 15 years, exceeding the 400,000 mark, making it the world’s sixth most popular destination for international students.

Blöss noted that the survey indicates that France’s brand is “strong and closely associated with quality education”. However, he added that French universities can do more to stand out from the competition.

“At the moment, it’s the business schools that invest the most in marketing and recruitment,” he told The PIE. He also said that if UK universities were to focus on Francophone Africa as an “untapped market”, French schools could see increased “competitive pressure.
