Hi everyone,

I'd love to go to university in France 2010 but as I've just started learning French this year, I think it might be too bad to study at a French University and anyway, I'd like to gain a more "international" (=English) certificate... I wonder whether there are any universities in France where courses (no specific ones) are taught in English!? (except for the American University of Paris; should be a quite accredited university :P )

Thanks for your help

why don't you go to an english university but do erasmus in the third year? That way you get an english education but get an acedemic year in France and enough time to learn french in the two years before you go

there's only one english university in france which is ULIP - University of London Institute in Paris - but you can only do french there. But I think its mainly taught in French...and it costs exactly the same as english unis in terms of tuition - and a bit more for accommodation and stuff being paris..but its still my first choice

completing an undergraduate curricula taught in English in France is not a viable option if you ask me, although you have loads of choices for postgraduate studies.

Why? (is it not a viable option) Do you mean the teaching standard or so is bad?

No no, but there's litterally no choice!
According to KLL, there are a few bachelor's degree taught in English, but I've never heard of any undergraduate programme fully taught in english in France! (apart from the AUP)

But then again KLL may be right!

i am 100% positive that the grenoble programe is 100% english for the entire undergraduate phase. and they are one of europes leading schools...
and the ESC Rennes one is entirely english after year 1. they don't offer 1st year afaik, but it's an easy transfer.

general question; why are unis so expensive in the UK and so much "cheaper" in countries like France, Germany, Austria...? What's the highest amount of money you could be financially supported with in the UK?

The impression I get is that we get smaller classes but near-negligeable contact time.

Why the pricing varies so much would probably be based on political tendencies in the different countries over the last 200 years...I don't think I could explain it so well :p: But attitudes to education vary a lot, which probably makes a difference.

university in the UK wa much cheaper not that long ago...
and in germany, for subjects like economics etc, contact time is near neglible aswell... in my last year at uni in germany i spend on average 1 or 2 hours a week in calsses or lectures.

for engineering and proper scinces this is different tho..
