Students of Indian nationality usually come under the “Etudes en France” or “Study in France” procedure:

  • for application for admission
  • for visa applications as well.

Admission in private institutions

For admission to private institutions, you may contact the institutions directly (Campus France Managers can help with the contact information of certain schools). Follow the school’s internal application procedure.

In this case, you will only need to go through Campus France for your visa application.

Admission to public universities

Contact the public university to know their exact application procedure and deadline. Applications will be processed through Campus France’s “Etudes en France” (EEF) procedure:

  6. You will then be called upon for an interview anytime between November and March. Bring along a receipt of Rs. 16,500/- application fee (as directed by your Campus France Desk)
  7. Your Campus France Desk will then send across your applications to the universities chosen.
  8. Once the universities start to reply, select your university among those that have “accepted” you.
  9. Inform your Campus France desk and complete your Visa process by filling the forms sent to you and collecting the NOC from the Campus France Desk.
