Paris Admissions

How do I enroll in a top school in Paris?

Every year, 350,000 foreign students come to study at a French university. The reception of international profiles is strongly encouraged and numerous financial aid schemes are implemented.

Non-European candidates

Students from outside the European Union must apply for a visa through Campus France. Once their registration with the school has been finalized, they must present a certificate of enrolment to Campus France as proof of VISA application.

European applicants

Access to French territory is free, regardless of the duration of the stay. Thus, a European student can travel without a VISA. This is one of the major assets that Europe offers.

Many exchange programs are offered to foreign students. Erasmus+ is one of the best known.

It is sufficient to send your application to a university in your country of origin when an agreement has been signed between the two institutions. If your application is accepted, you must then send your application to the desired French institution.


Do I need a visa to study in Paris?

Students living in the European Union

For a European student who wishes to study in Paris, it is not necessary to have a VISA. The French territory is free of access, whatever the duration of the stay.

Students from outside the European Union

Students from outside the European Union must apply for prior admission if they wish to do their first year of a Bachelor’s degree in a Parisian establishment. The application must be submitted to Campus France. It must be carried out between October and January, before the current year of study.

 Niveau de français

Level of French

What level of French do I need to study in Paris?

In Paris, in order to study in an institution of higher learning, non-French speaking students must go through the DAP procedure. This is a language evaluation test available from the French cultural services in the country of residence.

Can you study in Paris without speaking French?

It’s possible to study in France without necessarily speaking academic French. A B2 level is required for the first year of study. This level corresponds to understanding the essential content of abstract or concrete subjects, and being able to lead a discussion involving technical terms. At OMNES Education, some courses are entirely taught in English.

How to apply

How to apply to an Omnes Education Group school to study in Paris?

Applying to an OMNES Education Group school to study in Paris is simple, but varies according to your profile.

First of all, it is necessary to provide a CV and a photocopy of your passport or identity card. The diplomas obtained as well as the transcripts are essential to constitute a complete and representative file of your course.

Language tests are also required in your file. You will provide French language evaluations (DALF, DEFL) as well as English language evaluations (TOEFL, TOEIC) if requested, to establish your ability to adequately follow courses at a French university.

Finally, depending on your objective, admission requirements differ:

  • Bachelor 1 – Provide high school diplomas
  • Bachelor 3 – 120 ECTS credits (2 years) or 60 US credits
  • Master 1 – Bachelor’s degree (3 years) – 180 ECTS credits or 90 US credits

find out all you need to know about studying in paris


A student wishing to live in Paris has several options.

To find out more, see our accommodation partners and solutions on our “accommodation” page.

Students residence

The implementation is managed by associations, the hostels are open to students aged 18 to 25. Priority is given to apprentices, trainees or those doing a sandwich course. The advantage of these places is primarily financial. In fact, room rates are significantly lower than those of private facilities. It costs about 600 euros if you want to adopt this option in the capital.

Stay at a local’s house

Having a room of one’s own, in the heart of a French family’s home, is a simple and economical choice that many foreign students make. In addition to enjoying low rent and the comfort of a large apartment, the main advantage of this type of residence is the daily immersion in French culture. Note that we can find an alternative to this type of rental. We are talking about intergenerational housing, putting students and seniors in touch with each other in order to bring company, in exchange for a room at a very affordable price.

Private appartement and collocation

This is the most common case. Many students choose to rent an apartment, usually a studio. Of course, wanting to rent in the capital has a cost. The average cost of a studio apartment is 800 euros per month. The economic choice consists in aiming for a larger apartment, and to live in it with several people, in a shared apartment. It is a good way to save money on various bills, but also to get to know a new culture, by learning the language.

Private student residences

This is a very common method of dealing with the housing shortage, private student residences. In the case of a refusal from the Crous, it is a good alternative to pay less than in standard rental and to have access to many advantages. They offer access to the internet, sports facilities, a rich community life or simply equipped and furnished apartments.

The cité Universitaire

In order to apply to this type of institution, the student must be enrolled in a school in the Paris region and be preparing a Master 1 level degree (at least). A true reference in the field, the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris has a large number of student accommodations that welcome students, but also sportsmen, artists or researchers of a higher level, coming from all regions of the world.


Explore Paris!

We have listed for you all the places to see and visit that the capital has to offer in terms of leisure, culture, sports and well-being.

Paris is a major cultural city, and you will most certainly find countless opportunities to go out and explore what the city has to offer.

The official website of the City of Paris and the official website of the Office du Tourisme et des Congrès are good starting points to find information on everything that may interest you:



Sports facilities,


Outdoor activities,


You’ll also find a calendar of free activities (exhibitions, screenings, etc.) here . For your information, the city of Paris is divided into 20 districts (called “arrondissements”). The last two digits of the Paris zip code indicate the arrondissement. For example, if the postal code of an address is 75015, it means it’s located in the 15th arrondissement. This can be useful when trying to locate a specific place.

Museums and art galleries

Detailed information on the many museums and monuments in Paris can be found here

Among the most famous and unmissable museums are the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Musée National d’Art Moderne (Centre Pompidou – Beaubourg), Grand Palais, Palais de Tokyo (Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris)… Most national museums are closed on Tuesdays. European citizens under the age of 26 have free access to the permanent collections of national museums (temporary exhibitions are generally subject to a charge.) Other museums offer a reduced rate for students (a student card is required.) Most of them are free on the first Sunday of each month.

In addition to these great museums, Paris also offers the possibility to visit many small museums and art galleries such as the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, the Musée Rodin, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, etc. There are many small art galleries in several districts, but especially in the Marais district (3rd and 4th arrondissements).

The “Arts & Culture” section of Time Out Paris can be a good starting point for finding information on current exhibitions.

Cinemas et theatres   

Paris has the highest density of cinemas in the world (number of cinemas per inhabitant), giving you the opportunity to see almost any type of film you might be interested in, from independent foreign films to huge blockbusters. Some cinemas, particularly in the Latin Quarter, specialize in old classics or cult films. You can still watch recent releases either in their original version with French subtitles, or dubbed into French. Admission can be a little expensive (around €12 or €13), but most cinemas offer discounts for students (admission around €8). It is also often possible to buy a discounted multiple-entry pass.

Most cinema chains (Gaumont, UGC) focus on popular releases, while MK2 pays more attention to independent films. There are also many independent cinemas worth visiting for their program, but sometimes also for their building, history and atmosphere (la Pagode, le Louxor, le Cinéma des Cinéastes, le Studio 28…) There are weekly guides that can help you find films playing in any cinema: theOfficiel des Spectacles, for example. The guides also contain information on current plays and exhibitions.

For cinephiles, the Cinémathèque française is the place to be (screenings, festivals, museum, exhibitions, library, etc.).

During the summer, the City of Paris organizes free outdoor screenings.

If you want to buy tickets for shows and plays, visit Billetreduc.

Paris also offers many interesting options for live music lovers, from large concert halls and open-air festivals to small independent venues and cafés. Among the most famous venues are the AccorHotels Arena, the Zenith and the Olympia. Smaller venues include La Cigale, Le Point Ephémère, Le Trabendo, La Maroquinerie and many others. All these venues offer an eclectic program, but tend to focus on indie and electronic music. Jazz lovers will find several jazz clubs in the city, particularly in the Latin Quarter and the 1st Arrondissement. These venues all have websites detailing their programs. You can also find a detailed program of most concerts in a free booklet called LYLO (Les Yeux Les Oreilles ) available in many bars and cafés.

As far as record shops are concerned, you can also take advantage of numerous options ranging from chain stores like the FNAC and Gibert Joseph – which are also large bookshops with well-stocked independent record shops (Born Bad, Pop Culture, Music Fear Satan, Souffle Continu, Ground Zero, Silence de la Rue…). More details available here.

The Paris metro system is quite extensive and is the best way to get around. The metro consists of 14 lines and covers the central region of Paris and extends into some suburbs. As soon as you arrive, you must get a monthly pass called “Navigo”, or as a student you can get the “Imagin’R” card. It is more efficient to get a monthly pass than to buy a ticket every time you ride the subway.

Don’t forget to download the RAPT Bonjour application or consult the metro map.

If you prefer to walk, this map will help you find the distance between each “metro stop”.


The RER is a fast train, larger than the metro, which crosses Paris and its suburbs. You must purchase a ticket, the cost of which varies depending on the area you are traveling to. The RER lines are named in alphabetical order from A to E. You must buy a special RER ticket if you choose to travel with this transport system or buy access to zones 1 and 5 on your Navigo.


Buses are also convenient for short distances; however, for long distances, it is better to take the metro or RER. You can find a bus map on the website above.
