Great Success for French participants in the fair was shown in the popularity in their booths during the whole event. France has been the 1st country of the European Union (Except Britain) in welcoming Hong Kong & Macao students. The fact that gradual increase in the programmes taught in English, more affordable tuition fee and living expenses as well as the quality of life attracted 450 students from Hong Kong & Macao to study in France. It proved that language is not longer a barrier for students pursuing their study in France.
