French health insurance and complementary insurance for international students
European students must ask for a European Health Insurance Card in their home country.
Quebec citizens must ask for the SE401 Q106.
If European and Quebec citizens do not have these documents, they will have to subscribe to the French health insurance system.
Non-European students staying more than 3 months are obliged to subscribe to the French health insurance before arrival (around EUR 213), but we also encourage them to have an international insurance, covering them for travels, lost luggage, repatriation and civil liability.
Our staff will provide students with complementary information and wire payment details. For those who stay a complete academic year, please bring a birth certificate with « apostille » for the registration to the French health insurance.
