Higher education in France is the perfect combination of world-renowned excellence and a large variety of topics at a very low cost: 184€ for an undergraduate degree in a public university, 256€ for a Master's degree and 391€ for a PhD (cost of a degree during the academic term of 2016-2017). When it comes to welcoming foreign students, France arrives in third position. Courses can be taken in French, and the quantity of topics that can be taken in English too is rapidly increasing.
