How can a citizen of an EU country study in France?

There are currently over 300,000 foreign students studying in France. To study in France you do not need to know the French language. French universities offer over 1500 courses taught in English – candidates are required to have TOEFL or IELTS certificates.

Recruitment for French studies for citizens of a member country of the European Union is the same as for French citizens.  Registration usually runs from mid-January to the end of March. Consultations with candidates take place starting from May till July. At most universities, students do not have to take entrance exams. Usually, schools organize certificate competitions or conduct interviews.

Register your residency and study in France

With a Polish passport, you can stay in France for 90 days without any additional formalities. However, if you start your university and plan to stay longer, you need to register your right of residence. Residence registration in France (and any other European Union country) is only a formality if you meet three basic conditions:

  • you have been accepted to a university,
  • you have sufficient financial resources to support yourself without the help of French social welfare,
  • you have the necessary health insurance.

How much does it cost to study in France?

Public university fees for Polish citizens are rather symbolic. Just to give you an idea about the possible cost, in the 2020/2021 academic year, undergraduate studies cost 170 euros per year and graduate studies cost 243 euros. Annual fees at technical schools are around 500 euros. Private universities have different rules and operate the same way everywhere else in the world, which means you have to pay much higher fees.
