France is the ideal place to study abroad for your degree thanks to its rich culture, gastronomy, architecture, and thriving student life!

1. Experience a short-term program to get a taste of what French higher education is about

For the perfect opportunity to make the most of your time off between semesters and experience life abroad, France offers hundreds of "summer" programs (usually during the Australian winter) on a wide range of subjects and throughout the entire country.

For further information on short programs in France, download our free Immersion France app for Ios or Android or visit the summer programs online catalogue.

2. Gain hands-on experience through research or industry internships and access funding from the French Embassy

French universities encourage students to apply their skills and knowledge in real life situations, in a lab or in a company; Special consideration is given to candidates willing to undertake an internship in France when applying for the Embassy of France in Australia's Nicolas Baudin Mobility Grant.

3. Participate in an exchange program

You can study and travel in France while staying enrolled at your university in Australia and therefore getting credit for your studies. Most Australian universities have exchange program partnerships with French institutions. In addition, you can usually work with a Study Abroad Abroad Coordinator to arrange an exchange with one of the universities in the International Student Exchange Partnership (ISEP) network.

For further information, please contact your University's international office.
