Insurance and Vaccines

We strongly recommend that all students carry medical, accident and liability insurance for the length of their stay. A copy of the insurance contract must be handed in to Student Admissions at the school upon arrival.

Tetanus and tuberculosis vaccinations are advised for all students. Please contact your nearest French Embassy or Consulate for vaccination recommendations.


Administrative procedures differ according to the applicant's nationality. Required documents and time frames vary in relation to specific international agreements.

We highly recommend that students consult their nearest French Embassy or Consulate for information on visa procedures several months before their departure. Consult the France Diplomatie website for more information.

Please note that those students wishing to begin an internship must obtain a valid visa entitled " carte de séjour". Only those students in possession of a valid “carte de séjour” will be accepted for an internship.
