The cost of attending a French university for students from outside the European Union is set to shoot up from €170 to €2,770 per year, a jump of 16 times the current fees, from autumn 2019.
That means, with Britain set to leave the EU in March 2019, British students who want to attend a university in France could be paying thousands of euros every year to do so.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said that at the moment a “wealthy foreign student pays the same tuition fees as a poor French student whose parents have lived, worked and paid taxes in France for years”.
