Study In Strasbourg - Explore Universities in Strasbourg

Study in Strasbourg, and find the best universities in Strasbourg.

Not far from the German border, Strasbourg is a unique city to study an undergraduate course where French and German cultures collide. Add to this the beauty of the Ill River, which cuts through the city, and you have a truly beautiful city in which to begin your undergraduate degree.

Politics is also central to the city, Strasbourg is home to the European Parliament – the court where many of the major decisions that govern the continent are made – as well as a number of other political institutions. Its city centre was also the first in the world to be granted UNESCO World Heritage status.

Study in Strasbourg?

Strasbourg is respected as one of the best places for education in France, with many people believing it is second only to Paris.
Higher education in the city comes from the newly formed University of Strasbourg, which was created in 2009 from the merger of three institutions – Strasbourg I (Louis Pastuer University), Strasbourg II (Marc Bloch University) and Strasbourg III (Robert Schuman University).

With around 43,000 students from all over the world, you will be part of a vibrant community, comprised of students from all over the world.

Immigration and visas

If you are looking to study for an undergraduate degree in Strasbourg and are an EU citizen you will be accepted onto an undergraduate degree provided you fulfil the following:

  • Are studying in Strasbourg for more than three months.
  • Are enrolled at an accredited university or institution.
  • Have proof of sufficient funds to cover your graduate degree in France for its duration.
  • Have health insurance cover.
     
Non-EU students will need to apply for an extended-stay student visa, with residency permit (VLS-TS).

When a VLS-TS visa is issued, students will be given an official form that they must present to the French office of immigration and integration (OFII).

A VLS-TS holder must, upon arriving in France, send to the OFII by registered mail (return receipt requested):

  • The official form received from the consulate that issued the visa.
  • A copy of passport pages showing the visa holders identity and the stamp indicating entry into France.
     
You can find out more about visas at Campus France - http://www.campusfrance.org

Accommodation and living costs

There are two main types of accommodation you may choose between while studying an undergraduate course:

  • University accommodation – such as halls of residence
  • Private accommodation – House and flat rentals
     
University accommodation is in very short supply, so most students end up living in private accommodation. The number of private student residences is on the increase, making it easier to find student accommodation in France.

Campus France can help you with problems you might have with student housing in France, such as locating and reserving accommodation.
