France, a dynamic country
Lille's buildings

In the heart of Europe, France has been the world’s leading tourist destination for 25 years. France is also the fifth largest economy in the world, and is the leading agricultural power of the European Union. France is a dynamic country with a multi-cultural heritage that offers surprising discoveries and exceptional higher education.

France is the 4th most popular country for students in international mobility, after the US, the UK and Australia, and before Germany. France hosted 343,000 international higher education students during the 2017/18 academic year. This number grows every year. Under its international recruitment strategy, the French government aims to host 500,000 international students by 2027. JUNIA is proud to support this plan with its own international strategy.

Life in Lille
Lille's famous building

Student life in Lille is more than just studying. Lille is located in the North of France. It’s the capital of the Hauts-de-France region, has an exceptional cultural vitality, and is famous for its architectural splendor.

Lille was elected « European Capital of Culture » in 2004 and established itself as an absolute must-see cultural destination of France. Lille made Nestpick’s list of best cities for millennials in 2017. In 2018, NEON Magazine named Lille the coolest city in France, thanks to our young population, bike-friendly roads, and cheap beer! The city of Lille lives with the flow of its cultural events, concerts, shows and its student life (more than 100,000 students). Consistently voted one of the friendliest cities in France, Lille is a great place to learn and live.
