  • How can I be sure that my diploma is recognized in France ?

    • Generally, (with a few exceptions), all diplomas obtained in Europe can benefit from recognition and equivalence in France.

  • Do I have to pay for my travel for the job interview?

    • We do not have a standard answer for this question. It depends on the establishments. Some pay for the trip in full, others do not pay for it. Some agree to take charge of the hotel, but not the flight. This is truly a case-by-case response.
