Housing services

Finding appropriate housing in Paris can be a complicated and arduous task, especially for first time international students. For this very reason, Schiller has partnered up with several housing providers in the city to simplify the process.

Medical services

Students are required to carry their own health and accident insurance (“couverture sociale”) or be covered by the French Social Security system. Coverage is required from the date of their departure from their country of residence until their return.
