The French Information Center launched on April 19, 2017 is a joint venture of CIIT and French Embassy in Islamabad which enables CIIT’s students to meet officials from French Embassy once or twice a month to get free of cost information and advice about the prospects of studying in France. The workshop started with basic introductions and was followed by a comprehensive and detailed presentation on “Study in France” by Mr. Jamil which was warmly received by the students. Around twenty students attended the talk.

The presentation was followed by Q&A session. It was informed that it is possible to do higher studies in France in the English language and there are generally no tuition fees. Furthermore, students are allowed to work part time to finance the living expenses. The one hour presentation was quite interesting and kept the participants fully engaged.
