Study in France made easy for Indian studentsIs my French degree recognized in India? The one major question every applicant applying for a study abroad program seeks answer for. In my personal opinion, education should be universal, however there must be regulatory bodies to monitor the educational institution so no student suffer a setback. According to various sources, currently, there are more than 5000 Indian students enrolled in French Academic Institutions. Also, in India there are nearly 1500 French nationals enrolled for different academic programs.
In a historic move, the government of two countries has signed MoU for recognition of degrees. The government of both countries has signed 15 more MoUs between Indian and French Institutions in the areas of higher education, research, innovation, faculty exchange and scientific cooperation etc.
Till now there were only bilateral arrangements between institutions, however, this move of the two governments will certainly receive claps from students and academic institutions.
The MoUs were signed during India-French Knowledge Summit 2018 organized by French Institute in India alongwith Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) France and Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) India.
The French Government has the goal to attract 10000 Indian students by 2020.
The summit has explore 7 key areas for collaboration; space and aeronautics, mathematics and information technology, agronomy and food processing, eco-energy, natural resources, architecture and urban planning and urban mobility.
