To find out the start date of your study programme, you should check the academic calendar for 2018/2019.


Once your administrative registration has taken place, you must apply for Student Social Security online at the etudiant-etranger.ameli.fr website which will be active starting from 1st September 2018.

  • Read these instructions carefully on how to subscribe for student social security.
  • Look at this video which summarizes the steps you must take.

Social security allows you to receive care in case of health problems and covers the majority of costs (up to 70% on average). The remaining part of the costs must be paid by you. To cover these expenses which are not covered by the social security you are strongly advised to subscribe for a complementary health insurance called ''mutuelle''. This insurance is not mandatory but can be very useful because it can cover one part or all (depending on the option you have chosen) of the costs which are not covered by the social security. If you want to receive a complementary health insurance, you can contact one of the many organizations to find the offer that suits you best: SMERRA, MGEN, LMDE...


Once you have registered within the International office, you must contact the "scolarité" (administrative office for your study programme) in order to find out about your pedagogical enrolment, for example to choose subjects etc.

 

  • You will also receive a University of Burgundy Welcome Pack with brochures about the university, city and region which may help you during your initial time in France.
  • If your study programme is not on the Dijon Campus or if you are registering at an IUT Dijon please contact the administrative office of your study programme to find about the administrative and pedagogical registration there.
