Embassy of France in Canberra: Nicolas Baudin Grants

The Nicolas Baudin grants are designed to encourage Australian nationals to study for a semester or a full academic year at a French university at undergraduate level (3rd year), postgraduate level (master 1 or 2: years 4 or 5 of university studies, or PhD).  Enrolment in a French university will afford Nicolas Baudin grant winners the same benefits enjoyed by French students (except for social security).

A) Study abroad programmes in France for students registered at an Australian university

Duration of the programme: a semester or a full academic year

1. Undergraduate / Honours / Masters Students
The student undertakes courses at a French university as part of an official exchange agreement between his/her Australian university and the French university selected. Credit for the courses undertaken in France counts towards the Australian institution’s degree and no separate degree or diploma is granted by the French institution.

2. PhD level
The student undertakes courses or research at a French university as part of an official exchange agreement between his/her Australian university and the French university selected. Note that this is not for cotutelle students but for PhD students enrolled solely in an Australian institution who need access to expertise and/or materials housed in France. The student will obtain an Australian diploma at the end of his/her study, but not a French diploma.


  • For courses taught in French, demonstrate a sufficient working knowledge of French.
  • For undergraduate / Honours / Masters students / PhD students undertaking a course work programme in France: Evidence of the candidate’s selection by his/her university to participate in a study abroad programme as well as evidence of acceptance in the French university where the applicant intends to study.
  • The grant is open to students in all fields and disciplines.

B) One year full registration in a French university

(Part of the required years for obtaining a French master degree)
This framework of study fits the profile of a student seeking to pursue studies at Master 1 or Master 2 level (students will obtain a French diploma at the end of their studies).


This travel grant is worth AU$2,300.
