Higher education in France
Higher education in France can be obtained for a long (5-8 years) or short (2 years) study period. Higher education is considered more prestigious (for admission, you will have to pass difficult entrance exams, while you do not need to take such exams to enter the university). In addition, before enrolling in a higher school, you will have to use the preparatory courses working at the school (you need to attend them for 2 years). But on the other hand, after graduating from high school, you can be sure of guaranteed employment and getting the most prestigious and lucrative position..
Studying at a higher school, you can apply for a job in the field of management, economics, culture, education, and military affairs. And after graduating from university, you can become a doctor, teacher, lawyer or scientist.

During their studies, students have the right to work legally. To do this, you need to send a request for a temporary work permit to the Department of Labor and Employment in France (based on a student visa). You can find a job yourself, or you can contact “Student union”.
Getting an education in France is considered prestigious, and after graduation, each student has a chance to undergo a free internship at French enterprises (most students are employed even before they finish their studies at the university).
