Indian students in France will enjoy a special two-year residence permit after graduation to enable them to stay and look for work.The agreement was announced by President Francois Hollande and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this April 2015 in Paris. The post-study work visa will be available for indian students graduating from a french institution only.

It make Frances a more attractive destination to those International graduate students that contracted a loan to study abroad as they will have the chance to repay it by working after graduation. There are currently 2,600 Indian students in France.

The French Government latest decision on making it easy for Indian students to come study and look for work in France is likely to have a positive impact to raise the profile of France as a destination country instead of the UK. France’s Universities are also much cheaper on average than UK ones.
