Over 40 leading universities will be participating and students can learn about various prospects, including scholarships and beyond, straight from the educators. These include management and engineering schools, public universities, and specialized schools in hospitality and arts.

“It will provide an excellent opportunity for Indian students and their parents to interact with the representatives of more than 40 French higher education institutions present at the fair, and explore a wide range of study options,” the embassy said, as per a PTI report. 

Notably, France has set a target to invite 30,000 students from India by 2030. President Emmanuel Macron made the announcement nearly a month after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Paris as chief guest of France’s National Day. The country said its goal is aimed at fostering academic excellence, boosting cultural links, and enhancing long-lasting friendship between the two nations.

The embassy also said that France will create “international classes” – a specialised programme that will provide comprehensive training in the French language and other academic disciplines for the benefit of students.

A five-year Schengen circulation visa for Indian alumni was also announced during PM Modi’s visit to France in July.

According to the French Embassy press release, Indian students with a French Master’s degree also have the opportunity to work and explore professional alternatives in France during their two-year post-study work visa.
