FOREIGN STUDENTS/VISA

To avoid any problems, think about what papers you need very early on (ID card, passport, visa, residency permit, etc.) because the administrative procedures can take quite a long time. Required documents will depend on your nationality. Students who are nationals of a European Union country need only their ID card to cross the border and study in France. Non-Europeans must have a passport (please ensure that it is valid for the entire length of your stay) and a visa. The visa will allow you to enter the country and request a residency permit.

HOW TO OBTAIN A VISA FOR FRANCE?

If you are not a national of a European Union member state, the “traditional” visa (called a “tourist visa”) is all you need if you want to stay in France for less than three months. A “student” visa may only be obtained once you have enrolled in a school or university.

The price of a student visa will depend on the length of your stay. Visa requests must be made at the French consulate or embassy in your country. Delivery times may vary, but in general you should expect it to take a month to receive a “student” visa. You will be requested to provide certain documents: please consult the list of needed documents on the website of the French foreign office.

http://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/

Please note: Once in France, if you have a traditional visa (the “tourist visa”) and you want to obtain a student visa, you must return to your home country to apply for it.

WHAT IS A LONG STAY STUDENT VISA FOR FRANCE?

Students who wish to study in France must request a visa from the French Consulate in their place of residence.

In countries that have Centres for Studies in France (CEF, Centres pour les Etudes en France) or Campus France (ECF), students who wish to study in France must first apply to these centres, which will evaluate the pedagogical value of the students’ study programme, their level of French and their diplomas. The CEF or ECF opinion is then sent on to the diplomatic or consular services that they report to. Students must also have already enrolled in the school in question so that they can provide an enrolment certificate, which is necessary for their file. Students must provide proof of financial resources and meet the required criteria for their proposed course of study, as well as those concerning their academic and personal background, linguistic competencies (taking into account bilateral relations between France and their country of residence) and the interests of both France and the students’ country of origin.

HOW TO OBTAIN A RESIDENCY PERMIT FOR FRANCE?

Once in France, foreign students who have a long-stay student visa must, in accordance with legislation concerning the stay of foreigners in France, request a student residency permit from a Préfecture de Police within two months of their arrival.

HOW TO RENEW A STUDENT VISA?

If you are a student at the Academy and you want to extend your student visa, visit the school secretariat, who will provide you with a certificate of enrolment and a certificate of attendance (certifying that you have indeed taken classes at the Academy); these must then be taken to the Préfecture de Police to have your visa renewed.
