"Études en France" application : the New Campus France Process

From 15 April 2017, a new process to apply for student visa!
Etudes, Singapore


From 15 April 2017, students who wish to study in France for more than 90 days need to follow the Campus France procedure before applying for a visa.

Why a new procedure? A service provided by the Embassy of France, via Campus France, dedicated to students.

  • Thanks to the Etudes en France platform, students will be able to apply directly for French Institutions with one application only, from October each year (please visit Campus France Singapore website for the exact application dates). No need anymore of multiple applications! Campus France will take care of your file follow up until you receive the acceptance letter from the French Institution.
  • Once you got your visa student, you will receive advice on your mobility to France; get invitation for Pre-departure conference…
  • You need more information and a personalised guidance meeting about studies in France? Campus France guidance counsellors are waiting for you!
