Once the definitive enrollment has been confirmed, you will be issued a letter confirming your acceptance into the program. This document is required when applying for your visa at your local French consulate. According to French law, any stay for which the duration exceeds 90 days requires a long term visa. However, depending on your nationality, a visa may be required under all circumstances. Be aware this procedure may take a long time. We encourage you to initiate this procedure immediately upon receipt of your letter of confirmation
You will be given a list of French pastry shops and high standard restaurants where you may perform your internship. This list is not exhaustive. You can also search alternatives on the internet. You have the possibility of performing your internship anywhere in France. Please note your choice of city will impact your budget. The cost of living in larger cities (Paris, Lyon, etc.) tends to be 30% higher than smaller cities. Accommodation may be offered but is not done so systematically. We encourage you to be proactive and to do as much as you can on your own.
