The short stay visa: allows study in France for a period not exceeding 3 months. It is not renewable and exempts the holder from the need for a residence permit during the period of study in France.
The temporary long stay visa: allows 3-6 months maximum tuition in a public or private higher education institution. It is not renewable and exempts the holder from the need for a residence permit during the period of study in France.
The long stay visa: granted to foreign students wishing to study in a public or private higher education institution for more than six months. The holder must apply for a residence permit at the Prefecture within two months of arrival in France.
