OPEN TO AMERICANS.
French Universities Now Confer
Degrees on Foreigners.
T'oreign students are this year for
the first time allowed to receive pro-
fessional degrees hi the Freach univer-
sities. Up to the present time all
trench diplomas have been granted by
the state 'and not by the sciversities,
as is the case in Germany, England
and the United States. These di-
plomas, . view of the professional
privileges and other rights which they
confer, lave been rendered very diffi-
cult of attainment by a forbidding sys-
tem of formalities.
But now by decree of the govern-
ment the universities are empowered
to confer titles, besides the diplomas
granted by the state. These titles will
'cot confer the rights and privileges at-
tached to the diplomas awarded by the
state, hut the studies anld examiiatons
will be the. sanie. They will be de-
livered in the name of the university
'aud will be different from the focus
of those delivered by the govemrrment.
The studoent who desires to secure a
doctorate in France will cow be able
to elect his courses with a great
amount of freedom, to migrate fron
one institution to another, to take his
examination when he wishes, and to
meet many of the requirmnents hith-
erto prohibitive, by equivelent, and ithe
theses will be of equal foreign schools.
