• If you are a European Union citizen, part of the European Economic Area or form Switzerland, you remain attached to the health insurance of your country of origin. The European Health Insurance Card will allow you to be reimbursed for your health expenses in France.

In all cases we highly recommend you check the health insurance website for more information about the conditions of affiliation, the documents required and the procedures in France (ex. how to be reimbursed, etc. ).

You must notify your accommodation request in your MoveON application form. You cannot apply directly with the CROUS. Your request will be forwarded to the CROUS by the International Relations officer.

IMPORTANT: As the number of rooms is limited, we cannot guarantee that you will get a room, nor that you will get your first wish. You must look for alternatives in any case.

Exchange students can take up to 3 French courses for 3 ECTS each, for one semester only (see the FETE courses). These courses are for free.
