Before You Arrive > USA
Moving to a new country can be challenging — but you’re not alone! A variety of services at your new institution and beyond will help you settle in as you begin your stay in France.

Student support services through your institution in France

Many French universities and other higher education institutions have set up systems to support newly arrived international students. The services offered by each institution vary; they can include housing support (including reserved housing), personalized guidance, tutoring and French language instruction. 

Campus France provides information about the international support services at every institution that offers them (note: this link leads to the global Campus France website). It’s a good idea to find out which services your institution offers before you travel to France.
