Considering pursuing your higher education in France or internationally? Especially relevant to students with a French secondary school education, this latest edition of Beyond the Bac is also directed to international students who are contemplating furthering their education abroad.

The guide starts with an in-depth look at the tertiary education system in France, the recent reforms, degrees and diplomas, and application procedures. Learn about the prépas, grandes écoles, universities, and the numerous specialized schools for business, the arts, film, and fashion, among others.

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has caused a lot of uncertainty in the world. Circumstances are changing quickly, and students may be reevaluating their plans for next year. The guide can be a resource for the decisions they are facing as they navigate their journey to higher education during these challenging times. The gap year chapter may be of particular interest to some students.
