You may find below the steps required for applying for a student visa. The student visa is a long-stay visa valid for one year. This visa is validated once you have completed the necessary procedures at the Local Immigration Office (OFII: Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Intégration). These procedures must be completed within three months upon your arrival to France. The residence permit is renewed every year for the entire duration of studies. During the renewal process, the candidate’s seriousness and motivation are considered as important quality components.
