On 1st May, the agreement between France and India for the Mutual Recognition of Academic Qualifications, signed during President Emmanuel Macron’s maiden State visit to India in 2018, will come into force. The agreement was inked on 10th of March 2018 during the India-France Knowledge Summit, the first high-level summit for university, scientific and technological cooperation held by the two countries.

It is the first such intergovernmental agreement that India has entered into.

Welcoming the MoU, the Ambassador of France to India, H.E. Mr Alexandre Ziegler, said, “I am delighted that the Agreement will benefit Indian students wishing to study in France and French students wishing to study in India, since both Governments will recognise their degrees. Over the past few years, our country has taken several steps to facilitate student exchange between India and France. With this MoU we have reached an important milestone, which is a great opportunity for students from both countries. In addition to encouraging student mobility, this Agreement will also promote excellence in higher education through cooperation and exchanges between Indian and French universities. People-to-people ties are essential for strengthening our links, and producing ambassadors of each other’s countries.”

As per the signed agreement, the following educational qualifications from India (from Government-approved institutions) are now recognised by the French government:(LINK)

The French higher education system, long recognised for its quality, is among the top three most popular destinations in the world among international students. With its famous ‘Grandes Ecoles’ and reputed universities, its renowned management and business schools, France is at the educational heart of Europe.

The number of Indian students going to France has been sharply increasing over the recent years. Most of these students attend the over 1,300 courses taught in English in France, a number that is increasing every year.

In 2016, following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to France, both countries agreed on allowing Indian students to stay in France for two years (known as APS), one for the period of studies and one after completion of their course for acquiring professional experience, with a reciprocal arrangement for French students in India.

Last year, the Embassy offered 500 scholarships, including under its flagship ‘Charpak’ programme for Master’s degrees, exchange semesters and research internships. French companies, such as MBDA, also offer scholarships to Indian students, including tuition fee waivers and a monthly stipend. The newly established Franco Indian Education Trust has started offering scholarships in the artistic field and will expand the range of its fields in the coming months.
