Study in France
Welcoming international students from all over the world is a tradition in France. European students have travelled to France to study since the Middle Ages, particularly in theology, medicine, and law. More than 800 years ago, La Sorbonne was founded, the first French university. There will be a warm welcome from everyone, no matter where you're from. France is a very diverse country. It is one factor that keeps the nation such a wonderful place for everyone to live. It is comforting to know that, when you arrive, you will blend in seamlessly with the group. It is undeniable that being the new kid on the block can be challenging. It can be much scary if you arrive from a different country and culture, are unfamiliar with the area, and know no one. A great benefit of living in France is knowing you will be welcomed and feel at home wherever you go.
