Studying at a university with the "Bienvenue en France" label means that you will be welcomed in the best possible conditions and supported throughout your stay to ensure your mobility is a success!
What is the "Bienvenue en France" label?
The "Bienvenue en France" ("Welcome to France") label was created to allow French higher education institutions to highlight their ability to welcome new international students. It is awarded by Campus France for a period of 4 years and validated by an independent commission.
For institutions, the "Bienvenue en France" label is a fundamental part of their quality approach. It enables them to measure, describe and promote the facilities and initiatives that welcome and benefit international students.
