Published on July 17, 2020 Updated on November 7, 2022

Which French universities welcome the most international students? Educpros, a specialist higher education news service, addressed this question in its survey on the international attractiveness of French universities.

France – and its universities in particular – attracts many students from all over the world every year.

In 2018-19, according to the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, 246,890 students enrolled in French universities to pursue their studies, i.e. 69% of all higher education institutions.

Although universities account for the bulk of international student enrolments, the flow of international students varies greatly from one institution to another.

Among the most attractive French universities, Jean Moulin University is ranked 6th.

It welcomed more than 5,000 international students this year.

  • 1,652 students enrolled on an individual basis
  • 970 exchange students
  • 2,504 on overseas diploma programmes
This is a great reward for our institution. The University places internationalisation at the heart of its priorities by developing sustainable partnerships and collaborative projects with universities around the world.
