Long stay student visa
If you are a national of a European Economic Area country (European Union countries (EU), Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) or Switzerland, you don’t need any visa to come to study in France.
- If you are not a national of a European Economic Area country (European Union countries, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) or Switzerland, you must request a student long stay visa valid as a French residence permit (VLS-TS = Visa étudiant Long Séjour valant Titre de Séjour).
This visa allows you to remain in France for one year without needing to request a residence permit. Your visa will need to be approved by the OFII (the French Immigration and Integration Office) within the first 3 months after your arrival in France on https://administration-etrangers-en-france.interieur.gouv.fr/particuliers/#/
