Welcoming international students
Autograf's team is a multilingual and multicultural one. When arriving in France, we'll set up a meeting to personally welcome you, complete the administrative enrolment procedures, visit the school, present your course, and guide you through your first steps in France.
All year long, the International Office is here to support you through your procedures and make sure that you settle in at school.
An individualised support when arriving in Paris
Any person who's already travelled to a foreign country with a culture very different from their own knows how this experience can be both fascinating and thrilling but also unsettling and sometimes scary.
On top of this, if you also need to settle in quickly, to go through various administrative procedures and get used to rules that you sometimes are unaware of, settling in France can sometimes feel like an obstacle course.
In order to avoid these complications and make it easier for international students to settle in Paris under nicer conditions, Autograf has signed a partnership with LivinFrance, a service that supports students on their arrival in France.
Whether you're looking for an apartment, a french guarantor, trying to open a bank account, subscribe to a phone plan, a house insurance contract, request your social security card or housing benefits, apply for a visa, etc., LivinFrance will help you for all these procedures, before and after your arrival in Paris.
Learning French while studying
On top of Autograf's dedicated FLE programs (French as a Foreign Language + Art + Design), students can follow additional French language classes while completing their Bachelor's or Master's Degree. That way, students can better follow their classes and prepare for their final oral exams or write their dissertation.
