France is emerging as a popular international students' destination abroad. Besides the breathtaking scenic beauty, dense historic past and cultural richness, France also houses some of the oldest universities in the world. The University of Paris founded in 1179, University of Toulouse founded in 1229 and University of Montpellier founded in 1289, are till date are rated worldwide as centers of academic excellence. During the last four years four French scientists have received the prestigious Nobel Prize, a signal honour for the country. This achievement reflects the high level and efficiency of engineering studies in France. Education in France is subsidized by the state and thus provides good value for money by offering internationally recognized degrees at affordable costs. In order to attract more international students, French Universities are now increasingly using English as the medium of instruction specially in areas like management, engineering, political sciences etc. For students lacking proficiency in French, language centers and special courses are available during vacation time.
