Advantages for members of the Campus France Forum


Campus France has set up a large number of structures to assist the members of the Forum. The agency organises activities in France and abroad to promote and highlight the academic programmes here.

Active participation in Forum activities

The member institutes are major contributors to the Campus France Forum activities. They participate in the Forum's annual general meeting and are invited to the annual seminar involving the agency's regulating ministries, representatives of nearly 350 French organisations, and representatives of institutes of higher education.

"Doctoral research and training", "European attractiveness" and "Exchange of good practice on receiving refugees and migrants": a few examples of the subjects dealt with by the themed roundtables of the Campus France Forum. Within these roundtables, the Forum's member institutes can make recommendations to strengthen the international attractiveness of French educational institutes. They are then submitted to the Campus France board of directors.

An invitation to Campus France Meetings

Exclusively reserved for the Forum's member institutes, the Rencontres Campus France (Campus France Meetings) give them the opportunity to meet diplomatic representatives and managers of Campus France Offices from around the world.

This event is the ideal way to inform people about your institute's academic programmes as well as your promotional activities and academic cooperation initiatives. It is also the occasion to talk with the participants about cooperation and higher education in their countries and, perhaps, ask for their help with your projects.

Support from the Campus France offices abroad

The Forum's member institutes can receive support from the 260 Campus France offices and branches located in more than 120 countries. These offices constitute an essential relay to help in the promotion of their academic programmes and in their communication activities abroad.

Promoting your institute's reception services
