Parcours Sup, prep classes, double degrees, universities vs private schools, certified or visa accredited degrees….
French higher education is at the same time very attractive thanks to its historical institutions, its recognized degrees or excellence of research but it is also the great leap into the unknown when it comes to choosing one’s study pathway.
The complicated terminology and the multiplicity of options and access channels make the enlightened choice difficult, especially when one comes from abroad.
Other questions are added such as for example the cost of living, the accommodation or the obtention of a student visa.
FIGS Education is first and foremost an answer to this major stake of readability of the training offer.
By representing 22 schools, 13 cities in France and over 100 training programmes, FIGS Education gathers together in one single place educational choices in more than 10 areas, opened as of the obtention of the school leaving certificate, through a simplified and standardized process adapted to international students.
Choosing and serenely guiding oneself becomes then much easier.
