All students from a country outside the European Union (with the exception of Quebec) must join a French health insurance scheme. . The cost amounts to approximately €210 for the semester or year (rate for the 2011-2012 academic year, subject to modification). During your administrative enrolment in The EM Strasbourg Business School, you must choose between the MGEL or the LMDE for your health insurance. We invite you to visit their websites to decide which insurance plan you wish to join.

After receiving your student card indicating that you have paid your health insurance fees, you must go to one of the 2 agencies (MGEL or LMDE) with the following documents:
  • passport
  • student card
  • French banking details
  • tuition fees payment receipt (received during the administrative enrolment)
  • birth certificate translated into French for the LMDE only

3. Immigration

European Union and Swiss nationals residing in France for their studies do not need a residence permit. However, we recommend that you bring the following documents should they be required by a French administration:
  • a health insurance certification document (EHIC Card)
  • passport or identity card

> If you come from a country outside the European Union:
You must conform to the new OFII (French immigration and integration office) procedure for the revalidation of your visa which will be equivalent to the residence permit. You need to bring:
  • an international birth certificate
