Besides being able to study in universities across France, students could also travel and admire the romatic atmosphere in France.
“The number of travelers who come to France exceeds the population of the nation herself, which are 70 million per year,” said Nicolas.
According to Nicolas, the government of France is really concerned with education, hence the education fee from elementary up to higher education in France is free of charge.
