  • Culture Shock: Studying in France

    Written by  Rosie Paul Tuesday, 28 May 2013

    Rosie is doing her whole degree in France, so she has a unique insight into the differences between French and English approaches to university life. Here's her advice for students preparing for the culture shock of studying abroad in France...

  • University in Paris - the French Education System

    Written by  Tania Li Saturday, 02 January 2010
    A word of advice: surviving uni in France is going to be tough. Whoever said it was going to be easy was lying. However, don't despair. This might sound contradictory but Paris I is known to be a jungle. And Paris II Assas. The other Parisian unis have definitely acquired a better reputation and if Paris X Nanterre is in your list, by all means please rush there. The most important thing that you have to understand about the French system is that while the Anglo-Saxon unis often ask for entry requirements, French unis exercise what they call le droit d'acces à l'education mais pas le droit au diplome.
  • Lessons learnt as an Erasmus student at The Sorbonne

     So your tutor just announced that you're off to Paris next year and all you can think of is the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, French cuties and the capital of amour. Felicitations. After all, if it was good enough for Sartre, Monet and Matisse, well why not you? Oh and did I mention the amazing food? Settle down with a petit noir and a flaky croissant and read on...

    Let me first introduce myself: Hi, I'm a survivor of Pah-Ree. Like anyone else in love with the myth, Paris was my first choice for my Erasmus year abroad back in 2007. I was enrolled at Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne for the law programme and I expected it to be fun. Boy was I in for a surprise...!

Roughly translating, everyone has a right to access higher education institutions but not everyone will be guaranteed graduating with a degree.
