The UniLaSalle International Relations Office assists with your arrival on campus. In addition to administrative help, you will get support from the Com’ internationale society. Made up exclusively of volunteer UniLaSalle students, the Com’ internationale is there to answer all your questions about daily life, how the campus operates, and many other subjects besides. You will be individually mentored by a “tutor”, a Lasallian student who has volunteered to help you settle in.
The International Relations Office will send you helpful information by email about accommodation, student life and a practical guide designed for international students.
Let us know when and where you are due to arrive in France:
- if you are flying into Paris-Beauvais-Tillé airport, we’ll come and meet you!
- if you are flying to Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle or Paris-Orly, we will send you practical information about public transport so you can travail to Beauvais, and timetables for two shuttles we organize between Beauvais railway station and UniLaSalle campus. If you arrive when this station-campus shuttle is not running, we will send you information about buses that serve the campus.
You will be welcomed by a member of the International Relations team or by your student tutor.
We will give you a welcome pack with your room keys, university restaurant card and other information.
We will take you to your bedroom on campus and you will then be able to settle in. International students are all housed in the same halls of residence. A communal kitchen is available but you are responsible for its cleanliness.
We will organize a welcome meeting either on the day you arrive or within two days to explain all the administrative formalities.
- your enrollment at UniLaSalle,
- your health insurance through mandatory student social security,
- your insurance for your accommodation on campus,
- opening a bank account,
- your registration at the CAF (family allowance fund) to be able to receive housing benefit,
And, depending on your situation and requirements:
- formalities for the OFII (French Office for Immigration and Integration),
- your bus card.
Afterwards, the International Relations Office or volunteer students will take you on a guided tour of the campus so you get to know the place.
The Com’internationale organizes events for international students. Some of these events are also open to French students to help you to settle in.
- a team building exercise,
- a cultural trip,
- an international dinner,
- coffee and cake get-togethers.
