Application Form – Incoming Students

Degree-Seeking Students & Exchange Students

    * Fields with an asterisk are mandatory


    If you are applying to a 2nd or 3rd year of a Bachelor's or to a Master's degree you must follow the "Studying in France" procedure to obtain a student visa.

    If you are not a European Union citizen and if you are not residing in France before entering your programme at MINES Saint-Étienne, you must ask for a visa in your home country before starting your programme at MINES Saint-Étienne. This visa is called "long-time visa considered as a residence permit for student".

    WARNING: the visa called "long-time temporary visa for student" is more restrictive, you are not allowed to work during your studies even for an internship and you must leave France at the end of the visa - no extension is allowed. This visa is therefore not recommended for your studies at MINES Saint-Étienne (especially if an internship is a part of your programme).

    WARNING: if you enter France with the wrong visa ("short-time visa" or "tourist visa"), you may be asked to go back to your country before applying for a new (correct) visa.

    In any case, MINES Saint-Étienne shall not be considered responsible for any error in your visa procedure.

    For 42 countries listed hereafter, you must follow the "Studying in France" procedure.
    Create your private electronic file, follow the instructions and fill in the appropriate fields of this application form with your personal ID attributed by the procedure. If necessary, contact the Campus France space for your country of residence for more information.

    Any document that is requested in the Campus France procedure may be omitted in this application package.

    The 42 countries are: Algeria, Argentina, Benin, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Burundi Cameroon, Chile, China, Colombia, Comoros, the Republic of the Congo, South Korea, Ivory Coast, Egypt, United States, Gabon, Guinea, Haïti, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Mauritius, Mauritania, Mexico, Peru, Senegal, Democratic Republic of Congo, Russia, Senegal, Singapore, Taiwan, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey and Vietnam.
    If you are from another country, please contact directly the French Embassy or French Consulate for your visa.

    From September 2019 Non-European students will be required to pay 3.770 euros to enrol on a Master of Science programme in France. In the case of a bilateral agreement between your home institution and Mines Saint Etienne, fees can be waived.
    For more information, see Campus France.
