4 A European qualifications framework CampusFrance A national agency for the promotion of French higher education abroad CampusFrance - Higher education in France French higher education is divided into 3 stages in accord with the harmonized European system. The stages are marked by degrees: licence (bachelor), master, doctorate (LMD). The time to degree is measured in terms of semesters of study and corresponding “ECTS credits.” uLicence (L) = 6 semesters = 180 ECTS credits uMaster (M) = 4 semesters = 120 ECTS credits uDoctorate (D) = 3 or more years following the master (not expressed in ECTS credits) ECTS, the European Credit Transfer System, is a common European System of cumulable, transferable credits that reflect the time a student has spent in higher education. The system facilitates intra-European mobility of students over their academic career. 5

6 CampusFrance A national agency for the promotion of French higher education abroad New legislation affecting the universities A new law setting forth the freedoms and responsibilities of the nation’s universities was passed in August 2007. The law has two main goals: uTo make the universities more autonomous uTo endow them with resources equal to those of equivalent institutions in other OECD countries. Map of the 20 autonomous universities CampusFrance - Higher education in France 14

7 CampusFrance A national agency for the promotion of French higher education abroad Recent developments The nation’s higher education and research efforts have undergone important changes in recent years. Public support for education and research is expected to rise by €10 to €15 billion between 2010 and 2015. uNew legislation on academic freedom and responsibility is increasing the autonomy of universities. uUnder Operation Campus, proposals have been solicited to improve university facilities and thereby increase the dynamism of campus life. Of the 10 projects approved to date, 7 are categorized as “promising models” and 4 as “innovative approaches.” uHigher education and research efforts have been realigned through the creation of PRES (research and higher education clusters), RTRAs (thematic networks for advanced research), RTRS (thematic networks for medical research), and competitiveness clusters.
