As per the new data released by the Campus France, the France Government has issued 25% more visas to international students who came to study in the country. During the pandemic times, the French Immigration officials notified 17% reduction in study visas issued by them to international students in 2020.
The Campus France's data shows 3% increase in the issuance of student visas issued in 2019-20, before the pandemic.
In 2020-21, a minor 1% decline was noted as around 365000 international students enrolled in France, as compared to 2019-20 numbers. Taking a longer duration in consideration, an overall rise of 18% has been recorded in the numbers of international students in France over the duration of 05 years.
The foreign enrollments in France fairly vary by nationalities. Morocco bags the top position among the sending countries, followed by Algeria and China. As per the worldwide trend, there was no rise in Chinese enrollments for France last year.
Comparatively, there are many other nations which are sending significant number of students. The international enrollments from African markets such as the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Benin, Republic of Congo, Cameroon, and Gabon are increasing for taking admissions in French institutions.
French institutions are also recognising a significant growth from Spain, Italy, Turkey and Portugal.
France has also launched a new scholarship programme i.e. 'France Excellence Europa' to encourage European students to select France as their study destination for Masters/ Postgraduation.
The scholarship candidates can study for Education & Pedagogy, Culture & Heritage, Law & Political Sciences, French Language & Civilization, European Studies, Environmental Sciences, Health, and Computer Science & Digital.
As per the Campus France notes, keeping in mind the data of 05 years ago, North Africa and Middle East send 24% more students. Sub-Saharan Africa sends 41% more and Europe 11% more students. Together, European and African students comprise over three quarters
