France is attractive for student recruitment because of the high number of students prepared to study abroad. French students want to improve their language skills and other skills and finally optimize their integration in the professional world thanks to foreign study programmes. French students and employees of companies consider studying abroad provides a big advantage for a successful professional career. When students want to pursue a professional career abroad, studies in a foreign country is the best way to integrate into that country at first.
