Campus France: A new organisation launched

At the end of April 2012, the national agency, CampusFrance changed its status. The new structure - a public industrial and commercial institution - represents a merger of the former CampusFrance, Egide and the international activities of the CNOUS. The enlarged Campus France was established by decree on 30 December 2011 and became operational following the dissolution of the former CampusFrance and Egide. The international activities of the CNOUS will be fully integrated into the new agency as of 1 September 2012.

Campus France continues to be supervised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The principal missions of the organisation have been expanded and include: the promotion of French higher education abroad, the coordination of services for international students in France and the management of the mobility of recipients of grants and scholarships of the French and foreign governments.

Antoine Grassin has been appointed as the Director General of Campus France and Christian Demuynck will serve as the institution’s President.

Campus France now boasts around 230 staff members in France and over 300 in its 175 overseas offices across 108 countries. The Campus France Forum has 269 members amongst French universities, engineering and business schools, and specialised institutions. The agency has a total annual budget of approximately EUR 200 million.
