Healthcare cover in France
New international students are required to register with Assurance Maladie for healthcare cover after arriving in France.
Since September 2018, new international students have been able to register with Assurance Maladie via a dedicated website.
This procedure is compulsory and must be carried out after arriving in the country and after paying the “student life” fee to the CROUS and registered at the higher education institution.
This dedicated website, available in French and English, is a unique space for international students to connect with Assurance Maladie.
The university also has an accommodation platform where you can find rental accommodation, houseshares, flatshares, sublet accommodation or a temporary room.
