Hi y'all, I have always wanted to start a YouTube Channel of some sort since I arrived in France, but I’ve been hooked down with school, work and other personal affairs for years now, but guess what, I think its time to give back !

I am Atanda Muhammad Freeman, An Expressive Artist, Portraitist, Minimalist Photographer, Linguist and A Travel Enthusiast; studying, working and living currently in the Alps region of France.

This actually will be my very first attempt to vlogging, so I apologize in advance for any future blunder or technical errors, but I guess the objective is to pass the information, which I can assure will be as accurate as Messi’s passes !

My videos and write ups will generally be on helpful tips, advice, insights as well as answers to frequently asked questions on topics relating to travels to France and other countries in Europe, thereby sharing many of my personal experiences and trips accross europe that might interest you.

I have a crazy crush on documentary photography and videography and I love exploring new cities and meeting people so I’ll also be sharing pictures, videos and stories as it comes.

Lastly, Questions (and answers) will be allowed both here on Nairaland in this Thread and also on my YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/c/FreemanLibre

Savage8563:

First Question on this thread by the way !

NOT ALL undergraduate programs are in French (as medium of learning), however we can conclude that MOST of the undergraduate courses are French taught).

International relations is a scarce course in France even in French courses, few universities offer this course.

In conclusion, Private universities are the best for the course.

PS; I will make a video soon on how you can find a course taught in English easily.
Re: France Travel & Study Info-guides By A Parisian-Nigerian + YouTube Travel Vlogs by freemanlibre: 8:48pm On Mar 23

In this episode, I analyzed the facts, figures and stats behind the tuition fee complicado !

Hello Godson1988 it’s my pleasure. So to answer your questions :

1 Do one need ielts for masters in france public schools

Answer: You realy don’t need ielts or teofl as proof of English, though most schools ask for it and it can be if advantage in case of many applicants. So my advice here is to filter out schools that describe: ‘bringing a letter of exemption for proof of English’ as an option in the requirements.

2 Are there scholarships one can apply for

Answer: Surely, there are schorlaships like Erasmus Mundus and EiffelScholar. There’s also PTDF grant for masters and TOTAL Scholarships. You should have a sound Educational achievement anyways.

Thanks.

So for the last 2 questions;

3 when can one apply for admission
Answer: There are always 2 intakes. The September and the January intake. But 90% of courses are September so the best time to apply for admission hence is March, April , May and June for September intake.

4 Can you give me some public schools I can apply to for masters in human resource management.

Well, I wouldn’t know that at head. But I did a quick search and I found related course at University of Rennes 1 and almost in all IAE’s in France.

I guess I have answered your questions. Feel free to drop more for everyone in future to benefit others

Hello there! I am so excited to see someone started a thread dedicated to study in France so we can narrow down our searches. I'm looking to apply for an undergraduate program and since there are barely- or even close to none- any undergraduate courses taught in English, I want to first start with a Diploma in French as a foreign language and then, transition into my desired course of study. The thing is, I'm focused on getting the diploma at a public school in Paris, preferably Paris 7 or Paris 13 as I'll be staying with someone who is more familiar with the terrain. My French isn't so good and it makes the information on the school sites confusing. Can you give any information regarding this? From what I see, if I'm correct, it costs a lot (it's divided into 4 modules with separate payments) and also, it states that I have to be a baccalaureate holder. This is the first time doing this on my own concerning France and I hope I can get assistance, no matter how little, so I do not miss this application period. Thank you so much! Would you rather we give back and forth responses here or we can exchange emails? Anything that's fine with you. BTW, I watched your Youtube video.
Re: France Travel & Study Info-guides By A Parisian-Nigerian + YouTube Travel Vlogs by Lita14: 9:21am On Apr 02
With further research, I discovered that the baccalaureate in France is equal to a high school diploma/certificate, kind of how the degree is called a License there. My main focus now is about the price range and getting the visa. With stories I've seen, they say it's rare for Nigerians to get a Visa to study French in France, although I'm willing to go for it. Do you think there are other alternative to it? I'm taking the DELF before I submit my application (or is it possible to put it in awaiting?). If I can attain the B2 level, do you think I should just go ahead to apply directly for my course of study? Although, to be honest, my biggest focus is to get to study French first.

Hello, I will advise you to apply for a license course ‘bachelors degree’ directly, once you can get or have a B2 DELF certificate. It’s more logic and technical that way.

However, since B2 level of DELF is or may not be a simple piece of meat to chew, you can give an application for a Diploma course a try. It’s not ‘too expensive’ per say and yes it’s true the embassy may contemplate on the reason why you didn’t choose a local institution in Nigeria to learn French like Alliance etc... but I’m sure all depends on case to case basis and reason.

•• For the DU, I’ll advice you show more interest in furthering your studies in a motivation letter and also show a sound financial proof.

Hi y’all it’s been quite a while. Life itself is busy !

So I just dropped this new video I tittled ‘Describing France: What does the country look like ?’.

It’s for the aim to eye-open many that may have zero idea about France.

Enjoy !

Hi. I've read your reply for a while now and I apologize for not giving mine as soon as I could. Thank you for your advice. I decided to go for a diploma course and I already started my application process. The school needs to do a review and they sent me a list of documents I'd need to provide them with. Although, I sent it all, I'm a bit confused about a part of their reply. In their words, "Thanks for documents and answer
I need official detailed document from your school , and not only hard copy screen ". Does this mean they need a testimonial certificate or they need proof, like a scratch card for instance?
I sent them my motivation letter, high school result and copy of my passport data-page. About the French certificate, we reached an agreement that I would provide it as soon as it was ready, when I am chosen to proceed with my application, after the selection process.
If it's not much of a bother, can I send you a mail?

Apart from alliance français where else can I write my delf exams before October

Osasok:

I think Alliance francaise is the only authorized institution for obtaining French certificate exams like the DELF. There is usually a 2 month interval between the exams, so if you're looking to get the certificate before October, there's an exam scheduled for June (The registration deadline is up though) and another in August.
If I may ask, why do you ask for an institution other than alliance francaise to obtain your delf?

Hello, and also sorry for the late replies here on the thread. Questions needs to keep popping-in to make it a well interactive one.

So, what I understand by their reply is that they need your official documents being scanned (to show its a physical certificate/documents) and not a digital or 'numerique' format like the french will say. You can also send documents by post if possible like photocopies and for example original academic transcripts.

However, what I can advice you is that always show clarity in documentations and also always make it look well 'packaged' when presented.

Osasok:

Apart from Alliance Francaise centres in Nigeria, you can also write your DELF/DALF exams in The Nigerian French Language Village, NFLV in Badagry Lagos (They even always have a third session in Decembers, apart from the normal March and June exam sessions). Then there is the Institut Français in Abuja as well.

So since you want to write it before June, then you should contact Institut Français du Nigeria.

Bonne Chance !

How is the language barrier over there? Do most people there speak English?
Re: France Travel & Study Info-guides By A Parisian-Nigerian + YouTube Travel Vlogs by freemanlibre: 7:17pm On Jun 10
geloorrrrdd:

To be realistic, France is more French than other European country is to their respective language. In an obvious international environment, the language barrier is invisible, places like Schools, Unis, Touristic areas and sites.

Generally, some cities are more English than the other. I mean in terms of meeting people that speak English as a first language, foreigners etc. Cities like Nice, Toulouse and Lille are quite more English than any other cities in France. And also student cities are more international, hence the language barrier could also be invisible, such as Rennes, Grenoble, Toulouse etc

Thank you for your reply. I already figured out what it meant and sent what was required by the school. I got accepted and already began with the processes before the visa application. I'll keep what you said in mind concerning presentation of documents. Any advises before I proceed?
Re: France Travel & Study Info-guides By A Parisian-Nigerian + YouTube Travel Vlogs by freemanlibre: 7:59pm On Jun 19
Congrats on your acceptance. What school and city is it ?

If its a private school, then I guess you are not obliged to go through the campus France procedure.

However, make sure ALL your documents are complete before submitting your application at the VFS centre and also if you are being sponsored by someone related to you make sure your financial guarantor bares the same surname as yours (make this your priority by all means). It facilitates things.

And lastly, If you can ask for a complementary letter from the school to back up your visa application, it would be very nice as well.

Goodluck !

Hi, I have a friend who recently got admission to study in France. She is having mixed feelings about it. Upon expiration of her study does she get a 2 years post study visa or she will have to leave the country. Thank you
Re: France Travel & Study Info-guides By A Parisian-Nigerian + YouTube Travel Vlogs by Lita14: 2:02pm On Jun 20
Thank you. It is a public university in Paris. University Of Paris.
Thanks for letting me know. But then, if you're not related to your sponsor or they don't bear the same surname as yours, what can be done?
Also, about including all documents, does this apply to only VFS? In a situation where a document is missing but you're sure to get it before starting the VFS application, for the Campus France application, can it help to include in the motivation/cover letter attached that there is a missing document that would be available later? What can work in such situation?

It’s absolutely normal to have a mixed feeling over future effective decisions like this. But don’t waste the opportunity! No where will become heaven the following day !

After studies, mostly masters, you can apply for A year prolongation to look for the desired job if you couldn’t get it before your visa expires.

Cool and Congrats once again.

Yes at VFS while submitting don’t ever submit without any single missing document to avoid issue. Download the checklist for student visa. You will see it while feeling the form online. Once there a missing document that you are waiting for, then you can wait till you get it.

Issues with your guarantor bearing your surname is not a compulsion but very and highly recommended.

Yes, all admitted students have to register with Campus France or at least ‘inform’ Campus France office (Lagos or Abuja) before processing a student visa.
