Students, considered as temporarily residing in the territory of the State where they pursue their studies, must also be affiliated to the French social security system.
Before leaving, these 2 categories must obtain the European Health Insurance Card (or a provisional replacement certificate) from their health insurance fund or student mutual insurance company.
Students whose studies are part of a Community programme (Erasmus, Lingua, etc.) or who lead to a qualification officially recognised by an EEA Member State may benefit from the social protection of the host country during their stay.
