All prospective students intending to study in France for more than 3 months and who are not nationals of the European Economic Space, must obtain an extended-stay student visa: the extended-stay visa and residency permit (known as the VLS-TS), marked “student,” for stays exceeding 3 months.
You must apply at the French embassy or consulate in your country. The VLS-TS visa is granted to international students who intend to study in an institution of higher education for a period longer than 3 months.
This visa also serves as a residency permit for the duration of its validity, provided it is certified by the OFII (Office Français de l’Immigrationet de l’Intégration).
To have your visa certified for this purpose, contact OFII at www.ofii.fr as soon as you arrive in France.
You may apply for a visa once you have received your enrolment confirmation but not before.

You must inform MR GROUPE as soon as your visa is granted in order for us to organize your arrival in France and in the school. The school also needs to know your date of arrival to finalize your enrolment and prepare your administrative file and all documents your will require as a new student (student card, student health cover, etc…).
