Working in France

Job vacancies in France in different areas sum upto over 3 lakhs and those who can speak or understand French stand a better chance to get a job. So even though knowing French for an admit and Visa is not mandatory, you can learn French while studying to make your work environment easier. Apart from making a 5 figure salary, you can work part time in France while studying. Students also get upto two years stay back option to live and work in France. After three years of work in France, students can apply for PR in France.
