Re: French speaking Universities
I only know about Strasbourg. It's a nice uni with a very strong reputation and very good research teams, especially in human sciences. You can study almost everything there, the uni is in the top 150 of the ARWU ranking of Shanghai.
The city is beautiful, really nice and there are a lot of students so you won't be bored.
