What are the formalities for studying at IMT-BS?

Compulsory insurance

Students who are nationals of the European Economic Area must apply for a European health insurance card from the health insurance fund in their country of origin before they leave.

International students from other countries must register with the French Social Security system as soon as they arrive in France: Registration. French health insurance, provided by Sécurité Sociale (Ameli), is of a very high standard, and reimburses a portion of medical expenses for a basic contribution. It is compulsory for non-European students (Ameli information).

In addition, all students can take out a private insurance policy covering all medical risks, with no price restrictions.

It covers damage to your home and possessions. Each school or country has its own requirements. Make sure you get all the information you need.

Compulsory for all students, it covers bodily injury and property damage caused to third parties during your studies, internship or private life.

It compensates the victim for any damage you cause. This insurance may already be included in another insurance policy (housing insurance, for example). Check with your insurer to avoid outbidding.

Other formalities

All students must be registered with the general French social security system (CPAM) via the dedicated website (further information will be available soon).

If you are an EU student, please bring your European health insurance card (available on your exchange).

If you are a student from Quebec, you will need to provide form SE 401-Q-106.
