Complying with legal requirements once in France

As soon as you arrive in France, you'll want to take two important steps to comply with French immigration regulations. The sooner you get these formalities out of the way, the smoother and more pleasant your stay will be.

1 - Report to your new university or school and register for classes

2 - Apply for a student residency permit (if you will be staying for longer than 3 months)

Pay close attention to the documents that you will have to present. Originals are often required.

 

Report to your new institution and register for classes

All students must report and register each year. The procedure is the same in all universities. In nonuniversity institutions of higher education it differs from institution to institution.

Registration at the universities has two parts : administrative registration and registration for classes.

Other institutions of higher education set their own registration procedures and typically inform students of those procedures before their departure for France.
