Health insurance

  All students (up to the age of 28) must, in France, be affiliated with the national students' health insurance (except for special situations related to a parent's profession, such situations are indicated in the enrollment file).

Insurance coverage runs from the 1st October to 30th September the following year.


   All hospitals have an emergency room that is open 24 hours a day. Physicians and pharmacies are on call nights and weekends.
