The most convenient solution for the student wishing to study in an American university is to go as part of an exchange program between her home university and the partner university. For students taking this choice, there are different programs: the Fulbright commission, MICEFA (Interuniversity Mission for the Coordination of Franco-American exchanges) and ISEP (International student exchange program). The Fulbright Commission (Franco-American Center for Educational Exchange) has a documentation center and advisers to guide you in the best steps to take, the choice of universities and possible equivalents.

The phase of the intake and selection tests
To integrate an undergraduate curriculum, universities can make you pass the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) and ACT (American College Test) used to assess knowledge in English and maths. These tests apply to both American students and foreign. Note that students who have completed 2-3 years of higher education do not need to pass these tests.
To integrate a master or doctoral courses, students must pass the test of GRE (Graduate Record Examination) which covers the same subjects as the SAT and ACT, but with a higher level. Regarding the MBA, students are subjected to the test of the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) instead of the GRE.
If you are accepted, you can always check with the International Office (Foreign Students Office) and especially go to briefings and reception of new students. This is an opportunity to meet American students and begin to practice the language!
All these tests are available in France (excluding ACT). Check the list of centers to pass the SAT on www.collegeboard.com
