Study in France Fair
[ Issue 149 Page 4 ] Thursday, March 30, 2017, 00:13:19 Wan Ju Kang Senior Staff Reporter soarhigh@kaist.ac.kr

Campus France is organizing the 2016 Etudier en France Fair as a rendezvous occasion for students looking to study in France and coordinators of French higher education institutions. Translated as “Study in France”, the name of the fair says it all; organizers hope that participants “gain valuable information about what it is like to study in France.”

Scheduled from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on October 16 at the Novotel Ambassador Seoul Gangnam, the fair is in conjunction with an umbrella event, which is the celebration of the 130th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and France. The fair is thus expected to accommodate as many as 38 French institutions ranging from public universities, grandes ecoles, culinary schools, to hotel management schools, all ready to entertain inquiries from aspiring students. According to the announcement by the KAIST International Relations Team, many of the gathering institutions offer regular courses in English, which some people consider a must when thinking of studying in France due to its high language barrier.

One institution that KAIST participants may best relate to is the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) Toulouse, which confers some of the most prestigious engineering degrees in the country and has almost a quarter of its student pool as international students from 50 different countries. Another would be HEC Paris, which is the world-number-two management school in the 2015 rankings by Financial Times. Adding to the list is Mines- Nantes-Graduate School of Engineering, which specifically caters to the needs of industrial and systems engineers and provides 100% of its Master of Science courses in English.

The specific program of the 2016 Etudier en France Fair includes one- on-one meetings with coordinators of French higher education institutions, meetings with students who have already experienced studying in France, and information sessions by representatives of French companies in Korea. On-site registration begins at 12:30 p.m., but there is a website already open for online registration: http://www.campusfrance-coree.org/landing201609. Registration and participation are free of charge.
