Following the “Bologna process”, the French higher education system is based on the “LMD” degree system delivering “Licence”, “Master” and “Doctorate”.
Today, the LMD system is now used throughout the EU. This system allows students to transfer credits and establish degree equivalencies between institutions and different higher education systems much easier. It is designed to facilitate international student mobility within the EU and around the world.
As in the French public universities, the accredited private higher education institutions such as ESCE follow the ECTS for each course delivered. ECTS credits are cumulative and transferable.
One of the great strengths of the French education system is the availability of a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Each degree program corresponds to a course of study that is strictly defined. This provides a French degree with a very clear indication of what has been studied and the skills obtained by the graduates.
