Disheartened by UK’s Brexit and US President Donald Trump’s anti-immigration policies, students planning to study abroad can definitely look at France as a welcoming destination as the country plans to increase its Indian student target to 10,000 by 2020.

Last year, 4,000 Indian students joined France to pursue higher education.

To connect better with Indian students, Campus France India, a service provided by the French government to promote education and Institut Français India are bringing well-known French institutes to Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Indore.

For the first time, a PhD Tour will also bring together representatives of French universities with prospective PhD students.

Representatives of more than 30 French institutions, including B-schools, engineering and specialised schools such as law, design and hotel management will be visiting Delhi on February 25; Kolkata on February 27, Bengaluru on March 2 and Indore on March 4.

Prominent B-schools expected to participate include Rennes School of Business, ESCP Europe and ESSEC Business School.

Engineering schools include ENAC (National School for Civil Aviation) and Ecole Central (Lille and Nantes).
