Given its rich history and culture, France is one of the most popular destinations for students seeking to study and for alumni looking to work. Read on for more information about each.
Opportunities for Work
The Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF) is a popular program that offers applicants the opportunity to work in France for 7 months, teaching English to French students of all ages.
TAPIF selects about 1500 U.S. citizens and permanent residents each year to teach in public schools across all regions of France and in its overseas territories including French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Réunion.
Non-U.S. citizens whose native language is not English are also sought after through the larger Assistants de langue en France program, which recruits approximately 4,500 young educators from 68 countries to teach 15 languages annually in France. The Assistants de langue en France program is managed by France Éducation international.
TAPIF also partners with French and US graduate schools to provide generous scholarships for alumni as they pursue related graduate study.
Opportunities for Study
Graduate Scholars in France program is also a great opportunity to highlight for all alumni as it extends to masters programs taught fully in English. There’s also a sub-scholarship offered by Université de Lyon outlined at the link below.
