The Classes Internationales concept and Indian students

The 'Classes Internationales' concept has significant implications for Indian students

Commencing in September 2024, Indian students are afforded the chance to pursue a one-year course in the French language prior to commencing their chosen program in the country.

This recent development follows the announcements made during France’s President Emmanuel Macron’s State visit as the Chief Guest for India’s 75th Republic Day. The idea is being introduced as a component of ‘Classes Internationales’ which guarantees a ‘portal to France’. The ‘Classes Internationales’ is an educational platform designed specifically for Indian students to acquire proficiency in the French language prior to commencing their preferred academic program in France.

Additional significant notifications comprise:
Implementation of 5-year short-term visas for Indian alumni An additional €1 million financing for the Indo-French Campus for Life Sciences.

According to the official website, students in Classes Internationales will attend a school for a period ranging from one semester to a full academic year. The purpose of this program is to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge to get admission to a French university, engineering school, or business school, where they can further pursue their studies.

The concept of Classes Internationales was inaugurated with a primary emphasis on inclusiveness. The program is accessible to all Indian students, with the sole requirement being academic proficiency. This curriculum aims to enhance students’ understanding of French culture. Outstanding students will be awarded scholarships by the Embassy of France in India to support their pursuit of further education in France. India is the main beneficiary of French scholarships.
