Campus France - a campus for the international student [fr]
Campus France is an agency of the French Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, created to promote French Higher Education and facilitate academic exchanges.
Campus France was inaugurated in 2010 as an agency of the French Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Its goal is to promote French Higher Education, and facilitates academic exchange between French tertiary institutions and those in the rest of the world.
Campus France operates from its head office in Paris, as well as 39 branches and 141 ’Espaces’ in 110 countries. From these local offices, Campus France assists students who want to commence or continue their studies in France with selecting a study programme, applying to a French tertiary institution (if they apply outside of established exchange programmesoffered by their local university), and with practical advice and assistance with visas and other logistical arrangements.
In addition to these objectives, Campus France South Africa manages the applications process for the study bursaries offered annually by the Embassy of France to students who wish to pursue their studies in France on Master’s and PhD level.
Importantly, all applicants for student visas in South Africa must contact Campus France South Africa to acquire an attestation of their intended study project before proceeding to a visa application interview at the Consulates of France in Johannesburg and Cape Town (failure to do so may result in your application being rejected).
