Study in France without IELTS

Study in France without IELTS

Studying in France represents a vision for many foreign students. The top-ranked universities in Paris make it one of the leading destinations for abroad  studies not only in the EU countries but also worldwide. Most students face Language Proficiency Test obstacles and are demotivated by the concept of IELTS / PTE exams. Due to this reason, many institutions in France are now accepting admissions without IELTS. This is also one of the favourite reasons for Indian students in France to study here.

English proficiency tests are usually mandatory only in English speaking countries like the UK, USA, Canada, Australia etc. Yet even non English speaking countries like France, Germany, Italy, Spain and so on also follow the same pattern for admission in their institutions. While it is not necessary for visa approval, yet they ask to provide English efficiency proof for admission.
