Online Degrees from France
It was Napoleon who originally developed the French educational system, although changes in the late 19th century meant that both boys and girls were required by law to attend school until they were 12. Now in the 21st century, France is exploring the benefits of online learning. It wasn't the first country to adopt the idea of learning online, but is now certainly taking to it. In terms of the growing popularity of learning online, within Europe, France is in the top three countries for the adoption of e-learning along with the UK and Germany.
France is one of the world's top ten countries for the percentage of its population with Internet access. France is also known for its distinctive culture, so undoubtedly the development of online learning in France will be spurred on by the demand for French online degrees.
The naming convention for French universities is interesting. Public universities are named after the closest major city and then given a numeral if there's more than one. For instance, in Paris there's thirteen universities, each named from Paris I through to Paris XIII. Although some universities are better known by their unofficial names - often taking the name of a famous alumni. The first University of Strasbourg (Université Strasbourg I) is commonly known as Université Louis Pasteur.
