Studying in France

We are excited to welcome non-European Union students into our school, believing it to enrich our culture and develop international-mindedness and cross-cultural understanding. Studying at our school and boarding on campus will be a life-changing and wonderful experience.

Students from the EU do not need to apply for a VISA.

NON-EU students need to apply for a VISA before their arrival, which can be obtained through their local embassy. The school will provide the Admissions Letter in order to submit it to the Embassy for the VISA process.

The French Immigration Service has a webpage where you can check whether you need a visa to study in Spain.





Guardianship is a practical and moral support system for young students who are studying in a foreign country, away from their parents. It provides reassurances to students, their parents, and the schools they are attending, that should a student need any additional care, support or assistance, there is somebody nearby who can, and will, help.

If an international student does not have relatives or close friends living in France who will act as a guardian or host family, then you must engage the services of a guardian while studying in France. All international students must have a guardian during their time in the school, regardless of their age. SEK can provide this service.
