France and India Cooperate to Increase Student Mobility

Apr 25, 2017 at 12:00am ET By Alyssa Walker

Here’s some exciting news for students in France and India! Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar recently announced that India and France will cooperate to increase student mobility between the two countries.

Currently, 5,000 Indian students study in France, and about 100 French students study in India. 

The move follows France’s announcement to attract 10,000 Indian students by 2020, which builds on the strategic partnership already in place between the two countries. France is already a major destination for business graduate students, but this agreement will encourage students in a variety of fields to consider studies in France and India.

Javadekar recently met with members of the French Senate Committee on Culture and education.

He reportedly tweeted, “Had a good meeting with members of Committee Culture of French Senate led by its Chairperson Ms. Catherine Morin-Desailly.”  He added, “Talked about various aspects of enhancing cooperation in education and mobility of students between India and France.
