Why some French universities are refusing to increase tuition fees
Date created :
The French government wants to attract more foreign students to the country’s universities. But it also wants to increase the tuition fees of anyone from outside the EU who wants to study in France. They would go up from €170 a year for a degree for example to over €2,700 a year for that same course. A number of French universities are outraged and say they will not comply. One of them is Toulouse's Jean Jaurès University. Its president, Emmanuelle Garnier, joined us for Perspective.
