France is the fourth most popular country in the world for international students, with thousands of Americans, British and Australians coming here to study.
But even if the path of student life here is a well-trodden one, moving abroad can be daunting (to say the least).
It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the language barrier, seemingly endless paperwork or simply not having a clue where to start.
That's why The Local has written stories exclusively for foreign students moving to France to help give them a helping hand.
For example, we've looked at the the make-up of the students who move here — where they're from and where they choose to study. We've listed tips for Erasmus students, advice on how to survive Paris on a student budget, the hazing rituals to avoid at French universities and numerous articles on the best places to study in France.
The Local France now has a membership scheme in place meaning to access all stories and more in depth members' only articles, we charge a monthly or annual fee. But if you are a student you can take advantage of 50 percent off, meaning the fee will be just €2.49 a month or €24.99 a year.
And remember we produce many other kinds of articles that will be useful to you during your stay in France, such as this one on how not to annoy the French while you are in France.
