France Study Visa

Education & Career Consultant in Mumbai, Karan Gupta Consulting

France is part of the Schengen area countries. The France student visa process is time consuming and you should submit your application form at least 90 days before your course start date. But once you do get your student visa, you will be able to travel throughout the Schengen area. The French long stay visa application is a two stage process, and students would first have to apply to the academic center of France in their home country and get an approval from them. After this approval students can apply to the French Embassy or Consulate for a student visa. An interview is generally required and you will be asked questions about your reasons to study in France and how you plan to pay for your education. You will need to carry your income tax papers and bank statements as well as your past academic records including your mark sheets and degree. You will also need to know details about the course which you plan to study. Make sure to pay your visa fees in advance.
