Flight reservations

Confirming arrival date 

All international students must inform the International Office of the date and time of their arrival in France.

In case of a delay in obtaining a visa, the student must inform the Admissions Office and ask the Head of Studies the authorization to start their courses later. The school reserves the right to refuse authorization.
