The French educational system enjoys an excellent reputation internationally. On top of being home to some of the best schools and universities in the world, studying in France also has the added benefit of being significantly cheaper than in other educational powerhouses of the world. Whether you intend to study at the undergraduate or postgraduate level, France should definitely be high up your list of countries to consider for further studies.

Many of the countries of the world which are famed for their quality of life are to be found in Europe. However, few manage to reconcile joie de vivre with strong economics, innovation and opportunities for the highly skilled in the way France does.

As the most visited country in the world, France is no stranger to international attention and welcomes myriads of tourists all year round. Charismatic, chic and captivating, it’s on every nomad’s list and in every romantic’s dream.

Moving to France with a pet is a relatively straightforward and streamlined process. The French ministry of agriculture sets out a clear set of guidelines regarding the processes involved as well the types of animals which can be brought into France. One essential point to bear in mind is that many breeds which are allowed in certain parts of the world are banned, so be sure to check beforehand whether it will be possible for you to bring your pet over before making a firm commitment to moving to France.
