Campus France

Campus France Agency was created by law on July 27, 2010. It is a public institution (EPIC) in charge of promoting higher education and managing the reception and international mobility of students, researchers, experts and guests. A decree from December 30th, 2011 indicates the agency’s terms of action.

The institution resulted from the merger of the public interest group CampusFrance and the association Égide and is under the supervision of the Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The higher education and research institutions contribute to the policy guidelines of the agency through the “Campus France Forum.”

Thanks to its global network of 200 Campus France Spaces, the agency informs international students about French higher education, guides them on their choice of training, complete their application form, and gain a visa. The agency keeps in touch with former students, particularly through France Clubs.

The agency is in charge of the mobility of students benefitting from French government scholarships of researchers and experts on a mission and stakeholders invited to France. It is also in charge of managing scholarship programs from foreign governments and public and private institutions. With this, the agency works on several levels: designing training projects, positioning in institutions, linguistics training, reception, help to find housing, managing a students stay in France, and following up to gather feedback.

Campus France supports higher education and research institutions in their international development through events of higher training promotion in France and overseas, reactions to international calls for tender, services for Campus France Forum members, and studies and analysis on student mobility and higher education systems worldwide.
