Skill-biased technological changes tend to lead to more complex tasks and jobs in most industries. They generate skill shortages in some sectors or occupations, which can be intensified by the fierce international competition to attract foreign talent. Attracting foreign students, educating them, and retaining them so they can work in the domestic labour market is a relevant option. An investigation of the Campus France policy initiated in 2007 shows that making applications to universities easier for foreign students increases the number of applications and allows universities to select the best ones.
