Applying for a Student Visa
If you are a U.S. citizen or legal resident over the age of 18 and planning to study in France for a period longer than three months, you must first complete the Campus France application process and then, apply for a student visa.
Check your assigned consulate’s website in the map below. It provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about student visas as well as a list of documents that you are required to bring to your visa appointment. Please note that applications cannot be processed more than 3 months ahead of time and that the visa process can take up to 4 weeks.
