Higher Education system in France

There are two kinds of universities in France, namely public universities for which any baccalauréat is sufficient, and grandes écoles that set higher standards. As a consequence, many public universities are overcrowded with students in their initial year. While these lower-order institutions do not specialize at undergraduate level, they may cooperate with others when it comes to graduate study. Grandes écoles, on the other hand generally focus on a single theme such as engineering or business science. Tuition costs at all tertiary institutions are low, and health insurance free through to age 21.
