A student is being forced to choose between attending the frat or the college he or she has chosen to study at, according to a report from a French news agency.
The report, from the French daily Le Monde, said students were now able to choose the college they wanted to attend, but had to make a choice of where they would study at a certain time, on a certain date and with a certain amount of money.
“The student had to decide if he wanted to go to the university of France in Strasbourg or the one in Bordeaux,” Le Mondiste said.
Students were not able to go abroad to study and have their tuition paid at the same time, so the cost would be higher than at the university.
The report said students had also been told to buy a “certificate of completion” from the institution in which they want to study.
It said students are being encouraged to choose a particular school based on their income, with those who earn between €300 and €500 a month having to pay more than those earning more than €1,000 a month.
Students have also been offered to study abroad.
Le Monde reported that a student from the eastern city of Strasbourg was offered to a private university in the United Arab Emirates.
Another student from a nearby town was told to go and study in Turkey, while another was told she would have to pay a fee for the “special treatment” offered by her university.
France has been a magnet for thousands of international students to study, including from China, India and South Korea.
