5 steps 

1 - I DEVISE MY EDUCATION PLAN
2 -I APPLY FOR ISPA
3 - I PRE-REGISTER FOR ISPA
4 - I SUBMIT MY VISA APPLICATION
5 - MY ARRIVAL IN AMIENS

STEP 1

I DEVISE MY EDUCATION PLAN

Before applying for ISPA, we would advise you get acquainted with the application procedure that suits your needs best. Several options exist :

  • The long-stay student visa (if your project involves pursuing a higher education curriculum in France)
  • The temporary long-stay visa (valid for 6 months and compatible with studying French only)
  • The short-stay vis (valid for 3 months and compatible with studying French only)

The modalities vary for each of those three procedures, as does the time it takes to obtain each visa.

Warning ! If you choose the long-stay student visa and come from a country that has the CEF procedure, you will have to justify your education plan with Campus France and provide an ISPA pre-registration certificate, along with another pre-registration certificate from your future gra-duate/post-graduate education establishment if the certificates it delivers do not fall within the standard nomenclature of academic degrees.

Note that we can help you pre-apply for the following partner-establishments : 

Feel free to contact us if you have any question !

WARNING ! Do not forget to specify it on your application form during step #2.

Admissions will only be possible after one year of preparatory training at ISPA.

STEP 2

I APPLY FOR ISPA

 

Admission procedure

  • I create an account and activate it through a valid e-mail address
  • I pay a 200€ deposit via PayPal

Warning : as per general terms, the part of that deposit that covers registration fees (100€) is non-refundable, even if I do not obtain my visa to go to France.

  • I read and accept the general terms of registration available on the platform. 
    Warning : applying and signing up for one of ISPA's programmes implies you accept those general terms.
  • I fill in the online form and add the requested documents :
    • Scanned copy of my passport
    • Scanned copies of my diplomas and academic transcripts (including high school diploma)
    • Scanned copy of my TCF/DELF certificate issued within the last two years

Based on my profile, ISPA's admission commission will determine whether I possess the required skills and motivation to join the selected programme.

STEP 3

I PRE-REGISTER FOR ISPA

  • After examining my application, ISPA sends me a curriculum proposal by e-mail. If that proposal suits my wishes, I confirm my pre-registration by replying to that e-mail.
  • ISPA sens me my invoice. If the total cost is more than 1000€, I complete my deposit by PayPal or bank transfer to pay 25% of fees in order to confirm my reservation.
  • ISPA sends me my pre-registration certificate, my accommodation certificate if I have chosen to use its lodging service.
  • For a duration of 6 months, I am granted free access to the online training unit "Savoir France" which allows me to prepare myself at my own pace before going to France.

STEP 4

I SUBMIT MY VISA APPLICATION

  • Once I have received the documents, I file a visa application with the competent authorities in my country.
  • ISPA pledges to confirm my pre-registration with said authorities. Should difficulties arise, ISPA can contact them in order to learn more about the issue.
  • Upon reception of the reply to my visa application, I contact ISPA to inform them of the outcome.

Warning : ISPA cannot be held responsible for any difficulties you may have obtaining a long-stay visa or a stay permit using a registration or pre-registration certificate for one of its curriculums.

STEP 5

MY ARRIVAL IN AMIENS

  • Once I have been issued my visa, I organize my journey to Amiens in collaboration with the ISPA team.
  • If I have opted for ISPA's airport pickup feature, I inform ISPA of my date and time of arrival in France.
  • If I have opted for ISPA's accommodation feature, a date, a time and a place of meeting will be given to me by e-mail for me to move in.
  • In all cases, ISPA books me an appointment in order to carry out my administrative registration into the school.

Warning : I must be present at the time and date set for my registration. If that date or time are inconvenient to me, I should inform ISPA at least one week before the date initially set for the appointment.

  • On the day of the appointment, I bring all requested documents along with a colour photograph of my face.
  • Upon arrival at ISPA , I pay the remnant of the tuition fee. On the day of my administrative registration, that payment may be made either by cheque or in cash.

Warning : as per general terms of registration, payment of the tuition fee is final and non refundable.

  • After my payment has been cleared, ISPA hands me my student card, certificate of school attendance, along with the Welcome Pack containing all relevant documents I may need to begin my new life in Amiens. I am officially a fully-registered ISPA student, and ready to start learning !
