Following the latest information and decisions issued by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, in its bulletin of August 06th, 2021, the current sanitary situation does allow for a face-to-face back-to-school season, for all programs in higher education, executive education and for custom programs:

  • Room capacity is back to normal (100%) in classrooms and amphitheaters.
  • Health passes are not required for courses or pedagogical activities.
  • Face masks and sanitary measures (washing your hands, airing out rooms...) remain compulsory on campus.

Intakes dates per program and per campus:

Certain association events do require the implementation of a health pass restriction. The health pass must indicate a negative result to a test or screening (PCR, antigen tests of less than 72hours), vaccination certificate (complete vaccination) or a certificate of recovery. Certificates can be printed out on paper, or if used digitally, they must be recorded on the mobile application “TousAntiCovid” or on any digital media of your choosing.

International students

Depending on the country of origin and the vaccination status of the student, procedures to come to France may vary.

You can find country lists, travelling instructions and certificates both in French and in English, on the website of the Ministry of internal Affairs:

It is highly recommended that everyone gets vaccinated before coming to France, to make your arrival and first steps in France as smooth as possible.
