I plan on studying/living in France after I get my bachelors degree in the US, and I have a few questions. The French have a Licence/Maîtrise/Doctorat system, and it appears that it is similar to the Bachelors/Masters/Doctorate system in the US, but I just want to know if a Licence is the French equivalent to to the Bachelors, or if I will have to do some extra studies before I can move onto the Maîtrise. Also, if I study at a normal French university, such as the Sorbonne in Paris, can I expect to pay as much as a normal French student (which is almost nothing), or would I be expected to pay more since I am a foreign student? And, last question, is it difficult to immigrate and eventually become a citizen of France? I know nobody on here is an immigration expert, but will it be easier if I have (hopefully) been studying and obtaining degrees in France for quite a few years? If anyone on here has been a US citizen and moved to France, any advice would be great. Thanks.
