Throughout the year, Campus France observes and deciphers student mobility. In its annual publication Les Chiffres clés, Campus France carries out a detailed analysis of developments and current trends and draws up projections.
- THE MAIN TRENDS IN MOBILITY
5.1 million students worldwide study abroad (+28% in five years), mainly in Europe, which remains the world’s leading reception area. The attractiveness of English-speaking countries is confirmed (United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada), as are those that offer training in English (Netherlands, Emirates, Germany…). Half of the world’s mobile students come from Asia and Oceania.
- FRANCE, THE FOURTH HOST COUNTRY
France continues to occupy an enviable position for the time being. As the fourth largest host country in the world – and the first non-English-speaking country – it offers an unparalleled student experience thanks to a high-quality higher education system widely supported by the State. Our attractiveness is still growing in countries where ambitious actions are being implemented, such as India.
- “WELCOME TO FRANCE”, A NEW IMPETUS
Being more attractive to international students implies an effort focused on improving the reception of foreign students, simplifying administrative procedures, improving access to housing, but also on developing a training offer in English. This is the direction given by the new attractiveness strategy “Bienvenue en France” announced by the Prime Minister in November 2018 and by the certification of the facilities hosting establishments led by Campus France.
