I plan to move to France after sixthform. I want to do a gap year and au pair during that time to build up my french and earn some money as well as get familiar with the country, and then go to uni somewhere in france. I am thinking of studying french or linguistics, or literature. Or biology, not sure yet.

Has anyone studied in france or europe? How was your experience? Any tips or stories about your time in france as a student?

Are you a native French speaker?
If you're not, I highly recommend that you do not go to university in France, even if you think you're ready because you have studied French at school.
My cousin was from England and studied French at A Level (got an A*) and went to uni in France..she hated it and couldn't understand anything (considering uni is taught in specialised terms that you wouldn't know unless you have lived through their education system). At the end of first year, there are lots of difficult exams, and if you fail you get kicked out or sometime you have to opportunity to repeat. She got kicked out and went back to England.

How about this?

This is what I did when I went to university in Poitiers, France

I was tested on arrival so I could go into the correct class. There was a certificate at the end of it. As for jobs, I am not sure about that.

I would suggest studying in England for your undergraduate, perhaps studying French if that's what you love, or study biology with French on the side (dual). Study abroad for a year, and then do your masters in France.
That way, you'll have a lot of experience in French, you'll know exactly what life in France is like from your two years living there (as an au pair and study abroad year), and you will have no difficulty learning the course content and you could find a job there easily
