What do we do?

Copyright IEP de RennesCampus France USA assists students in the United States (American citizens and foreigners studying and/or living in the United States) who wish to pursue academic projects at an institution of higher education in France for over a 3-month period.  The Campus France online application process is the first – and mandatory – step in applying to study in France for all students, whether they are participating in a “study abroad” or an “exchange” program, or are “independent students” who chose to study in France on their own.

The Campus France online application is independent from, but a complement to the long-stay student visa application. PLEASE NOTE : All American students and foreign students living in the United States (including those under the age of 18) who wish to study at a higher education institution in France for over three months must follow the appropriate Campus France application procedure before applying for a visa at their assigned consulate.

Although students who will study in France for fewer than three months do not have to register with Campus France, it is our mission to assist all prospective students in determining where and what to study, and to help with their planning process.
