Hello everyone! I am an international student (non-EU) in my first year of Cambridge International A Levels. I wanted to study International Law in France however I can not afford any undergraduate program as a non-EU citizen. Therefore I decided to choose another law area for now, and then study international laws in Masters. I really want to work in UN,EU or international NGO in future. So what would you advice me to do for now? Which area should I choose for bachelor; Private, Public or any other that comes to your mind.
*France is compulsory for university*

As a mother of two students studying law in France, you do NOT have to choose between public and private until the third year of your undergraduate degree, and even then there are ways of keeping most options open because it's only a question of choosing certain modules whilst other core areas remain compulsory. (I have one child doing the "maitrise" and another finishing the first year of a two year masters) The real choice comes when deciding on your Masters, so you have a bit of time before having to make a choice!! At this point if you are still interested by the U.N, EU etc you would have the choice between " droit public" or "droit international et droit européen". The choice depends on which University you apply to and the courses available. Two very similar masters degrees with almost identical modules may have different names depending on where you study, so you'll have to do some quite deep research.

Thank you so much for replying! I am trying to do deep research as much as I can as it is hard to find an affordable public university with a suitable program in France for an international student. So you are saying that it does not really matter to choose private or public in bachelor? If you don't mind, may I ask what did your children take in undergraduate year? But thatnk you so much again for answering!!

From memory, in addition to the compulsory modules, they both took roughly the same things in their last undergraduate year:
Fiscal
Commande Publique
Contrats spéciaux
Propriété littéraire et artistique
Plus a few others that I don't recall.
But my children have chosen to specialise in the " droit des affaires" and have no intention of working in any form of government body.
