ARRIVING AND LIVING
DOCUMENTS HANDED OVER UPON ARRIVAL
Your course plan will be submitted to the EPF academic advisors who will confirm whether or not you can take the courses mentioned.
This document must be completed carefully, in particular regarding whether or not the chosen courses are mandatory and if they require evaluations. Some EPF courses are not evaluated, or they are only evaluated as part of projects (combined with other courses). It is therefore important to know whether or not the student expects to be graded, BEFORE the course begins.
Courses may change regularly depending on companies' needs, and, as a consequence, some programmes may be modified according to what has been on offer in previous years. Unfortunately, some changes might be introduced at the last minute, so you will have to go back over your course selections after you arrive in France.
STUDENT ID CARD
When you arrive at EPF, you will be given an student ID card for the entire academic year (your photo will be taken the first day of classes). You can use this card at CROUS cafeterias and to get reductions at cinemas, museums and more.
It also gives you access to certain services (specialist travel agencies, subscriptions, mobile phones, transport cards, etc.).
SCHOOL ENROLMENT CERTIFICATE
This official document certifies that you are enrolled at EPF and will be asked for by official services (préfecture, bank, university residence, etc.). You will be given several copies of this certificate when you arrive.
