Mr. Georges PIERRON, Director for the Asian Programmes of SFERE (Société Française d’Exportation des Ressources Educatives), visited Pakistan from 13th to 24th February 2006. He met the Directors of programmes of HEC (Higher Education Commission) as well as the scholarship-holder students of the Government of Pakistan. The meetings were held in the Alliances Françaises of Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore. The students of Alliance Française of Peshawar were called at Islamabad.

These meetings were held in form of lectures given by Mr. PIERRON about the steps concerning the studies, main difficulties the students might face and also the help they could get from different organizers of the programme (HEC, Embassy of France and SFERE). Mr. PIERRON attended later on a question/answer session with the students.

Miss Rozeia Mustapha, from the Higher Education Commission, accompanied Mr. Georges PIERRON during these meetings. She presented the point of view of the HEC to the students and replied to their questions.

Both the stakeholders particularly insisted on the following points :

-  fundamental importance of assiduity and punctuality in the French courses;

-  the issuance of visa is carried out after the success of language tests;

-  the SFERE guaranties admission of students in the French universities, according to their respective fields of studies.

Parallel to these meetings, a session of preparation of visa applications and collection of necessary documents was held in each Alliance Française and was supervised by the Embassy staff. These sessions bring about a great importance for the students who see the first concrete step towards their departure for France.

Till today, 170 Pakistani students in total are going to take up their higher studies in France in July 2006, for two months in a Linguistic Centre (Vichy, Grenoble, Royan, Colmar), then one year of Masters and finally three years of PhD.
