IMPORTANT (2): Please note that the students won’t be able to request an accomodation change during their stay, except for a serious issue. The students have to be aware of this new rule and think about it before applying for a type of accomodation.
Please find attached our Student guide in a host family. This guide will be also sent to the students who apply for a host family via the application portal.
IMPORTANT (3): The original birth certificate and the translation in French by a sworn translator are not compulsory documents anymore to be registered at the University of Orléans. Nevertheless, these 2 documents will be required by CAF (welfare office) for the students who wish to get a financial assistance to help them to pay the rent in host families or dormitories. The students interested in applying for CAF can bring these documents or they will be able to make the translation of their original birth certificate by a sworn translator in Orléans. The cost is usually between 50€ and 100€, depending on the source language and the size of the text to translate. The list of sworn translators will be available on demand once the students are in Orléans.
IMPORTANT (4): The health insurance in France will become free for the students registered in French universities, including foreign students.
Nevertheless, the students who will get a student visa “VLS-T” won’t be able to register at the French Health Insurance system.
Therefore, please ask your students to check their visa once they get it at the French embassy/consulates and ask those who got a “VLS-T” visa to be sure that they will be covered by an international health insurance before coming to France.
This visa is issued for students who wish to carry out their studies in France for a duration between 3-6 months. It is valid as a residence permit, and therefore the student does not need to have it validated by the OFII upon arrival in France.
This visa is not renewable in France and is not eligible to benefit from CAF services (www.caf.fr), including financial assistance such as the APL (Personalized Housing Assistance, or Aide Personnalisée au Logement).
