Each year, many students resident in Jeddah, including graduates from French high school, of all nationalities, about 300, leave to pursue their university studies in France. France is proud to receive them and make them want to continue to benefit from the excellent training offered by the French educational system.

Services and tools

CampusFrance’s ambitious program of international events (fairs, forums, thematic visits, university tours) reaches an average of 160,000 visitors each year. The program is planned well in advance, geographically and strategically, in cooperation with the agency’s supervising ministries as well as higher education institutions and associations.
In addition to major international events (annual bilateral exchanges, international fairs and expos, and major commemorative occasions) and the recurrent events in which CampusFrance participates, the agency has been experimenting new forms of promotion. Among the successful new formats are thematic missions, closely targeted institutional meetings, and structured visits from foreign university presidents.

CampusFrance responds to international requests for proposals, usually in consortia with higher education institutions or Major European promotional agencies with which it works closely. CampusFrance is participating in several projects funded by the European Commission, like projects to promote European higher education, knowledge transfer, and interuniversity cooperation.

Within the framework of the Erasmus Mundus Action 3 program (financed by the European Commission), CampusFrance coordinates the PromoDoc project, aiming to promote doctoral study in industrialized countries outside Europe. CampusFrance leads an international consortium made up of DAAD (Germany), Nuffic (The Netherlands), the British Council, the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers (Eurodoc) and the Institute of International Education (United States).

CampusFrance offices around the world

CampusFrance operates 117 offices and 24 branches in 89 countries. In France, a CampusFrance representative is integrated in every higher education and research cluster in France.

The main goal of CampusFrance’s offices abroad, called "Espaces," is to coordinate services for international students interested in studying in France, from the initial gathering of information right up to the point of preliminary enrolment.
Aside from helping Paris’ CampusFrance’s staff in organizing major events in host countries, the Espaces promote French higher education within local institutions.
Operating with a staff trained by the agency in close collaboration with educational associations and the agency’s supervising ministries, the Espaces welcome prospective students and guides them as they explore their options for study in France. The Espaces’ staff helps students identify suitable programs and comply with visa regulations and other administrative requirements that must be taken care of prior to their arrival in France.
In 30 countries an online system allows students to apply for a visa while applying for an admission to a program.
The Espaces employ more than 250 people around the world.
In anticipation of the opening of CampusFrance Espaces in the regions of France, the agency has embedded a representative in each of France’s higher education and research clusters, which are known as PRES.
