ABOUT IFI

The French Institute in India / IFI (Institut français en Inde) is the education, science and culture cooperation service of the Embassy of France in India. It facilitates academic and scientific exchanges between higher institutes of learning and research, enables student mobility and promotes French language and artistic and cultural partnerships. Cooperation between India and France takes place through a number of sectors: Arts & Culture, Books & Ideas, French Language & Education, Study in France, Academic Partnerships, Science & Technology, as well as Innovation and Multimedia. IFI acts as a matchmaker in the exchange of expertise, strengthening connections among private companies and public institutions between France and India.

Through Campus France, IFI offers a specific service geared towards students, which can be accessed in 14 offices across India. Campus France officers provide students free counselling services, facilitate admission procedures and visa formalities and liaise with French institutions for student applications. Campus France holds biannual education fairs where students intending to study in France are invited to meet representatives of top institutions one-on-one.
