France decided on Saturday to maintain the principle of free education for foreign students coming from outside the continent’s old countries, and to maintain the symbolic or reduced fees upon enrollment.

According to EuroNews, the decision was made by the French Constitutional Council, especially after a previous statement by Minister of Higher Education Frederique Vidal last year in which she announced a proposal to raise university registration fees for foreign students wishing to study in France from Countries outside the EU.

Vidal’s proposal aroused the ire of educational and student bodies defending free education and the right of foreign students to study in France with the same fees paid by the French. University organizations and representatives of foreign students in France saw the decision at the time as biased.

Foreign students, especially those coming from Asia, Africa and the United States, constitute numerous French universities at several levels.

The number of foreign students in France exceeds 300,000 annually, according to the Minister of Education, who said that the sector aims to receive half a million students in the future.
