However, Université Paris-Sud 11 has managed to obtain the right to reserve a small number of rooms for students on exchange programmes. However, you should be aware that the University halls are old buildings, especially the halls at Antony, which date from 1959. There have been very few improvements and renovations since their construction and they are not particularly comfortable. The rooms are furnished with only the basics and the showers are communal. Each floor has only a small kitchen and sometimes a washing machine, but this is not always guaranteed. If you choose this type of accommodation Université Paris-Sud 11 will undertake to find you a place in University halls, on condition that your application is received early enough (i.e. before all the places are taken). For your own information, the price per month in 2003-2004 was €172 (deposit of € 267). There are 7 university residences, 4 of which are reserved for students from the Orsay campus and the IUT of Orsay La Pacaterie Bât. 499 - campus d'Orsay 91406 Orsay Tel. 01 69 15 75 90/98 - Fax: 01 69 28 92 69 Les Jardins de Fleming Rue A.

The different options are described briefly below, to help you in your choice. Private rented accommodation is generally the most comfortable. • Independent Apartment The prices start from around €350 per month for a room, to around €425 per month for a studio flat. You will be asked for the first month in advance, together with one month's rent as a deposit and agency or signing fees. Although the total cost (rent plus charges such as water, electricity etc.) is relatively high, this option is by far and away the most comfortable. You may also have the right to housing benefit (Allocation Logement; ALS), which should reduce costs (see the end of this section).

If you already have this type of insurance cover in your own country, you should check that this cover also applies to your stay in France. If so, you should ask your insurer for a certificate translated into French, specifying the cover provided and your address in France.

Be careful the following documents must be completed and sent by post (by 30th June at the latest for students beginning their courses in the first semester and by 30th November for students beginning their courses in the second semester). They must be signed by the ERASMUS co-ordinator of your home university. An exchange programme application form: This form must be completed carefully, especially the section concerning the list of courses (ECTS) that you would like to take at Université Paris-Sud 11. It should be signed by your tutor/supervisor from your home university who agrees, under the exchange programme guidelines, to certify this study period as valid towards your degree or diploma. A University residence application form, if you have chosen this type of accommodation (see section on accommodation). The International Relations Board will return this form to you indicating the dates of your stay and the residence in which you will be staying. These dates must be strictly adhered to because they correspond to the availability of your reserved room. In case of changes, please inform the International Relations Board as soon as possible. • Documents required for the completion of formalities on your arrival Student ID card from your home university valid for that year Valid national ID card or passport with a study visa This visa is obligatory for all visitors from countries outside the European Union and EFTA, and can be obtained from the French Consulate in your home country before you leave for France. It cannot be obtained in France. Civil responsibility insurance certificate translated into French, if possible Birth certificate translated into French (to obtain a Carte de Sejour if you are from outside the EU) European health insurance certificate For medical and pharmacy students whose studies require them to work in a hospital, a vaccination certificate indicating vaccination against hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus and polio, and the results of a tuberculin test. • Language Preparation All courses are given in French. It is therefore vital that you take an intensive French language course at your university to bring you up to speed. The language laboratory at the Orsay campus organises two-sessions intensive French language course, for beginners and intermediate level French, at the start of September. Attendance on the first day, when the level of your French will be assessed, is obligatory.

You should register at the school office of your faculty or IUT (contact details in the last section). This registration will allow you to obtain a student card, admissions certificate, and access to the University library and refectory. To register you need: 3 passport photographs Registration authorisation from the French lecturer responsible for exchange programmes Originals of any degrees and diplomas you hold and a French translation of them if you wish to obtain the Université Paris-Sud 11 diploma European medical insurance card (see next section on health and social security cover) Civil liability insurance certificate €12.19 in cash (€7.62 registration fees, €4.57 for preventive medicine registration) 17 Health and Social Security Cover 18 Health and social security cover Université Paris-Sud has an infirmary for emergency treatment and offers a preventive medicine service. The service is free, but does not deliver prescriptions or drugs. Instead, it offers a diagnostic service and helps you to choose a doctor. www.u-psud.fr/ja.nsf/vie_etud.htm!OpenPage#medecine • Social security cover Social security cover is obligatory in France. You will be asked to complete a form to obtain the reimbursement of any costs associated with medical treatment or hospitalisation, and to obtain your carte de séjour. European medical insurance card Are you planning a trip to Europe? Before you leave, think of getting the European medical insurance card: it will make it possible to cover any medical costs you may incur during your stay. The European medical insurance card is personal and non-transferable, valid for one year and free. You can obtain your card from your local health insurance office. What is the European medical insurance card? The European medical insurance card provides proof of your medical insurance rights and allows you, during a temporary stay in Europe, to benefit from cover for necessary medical care, whatever the reasons for your stay (week-end trip, holidays, studies, training courses, professional business), provided that you respect the formalities of the medical system in force in the country in which you are staying. The European medical insurance card has been available in France since June 2004 and replaces the E111 form and other forms (E110, E119, E128) previously in use. For more information see: www.ameli.fr/47/DOC/1376/article.html (in French) Students from the European Economic Area (EEA) are exempt from student contributions if they have a European medical insurance card. They are also exempt if they have a certificate of affiliation to a conventional medical insurance scheme or a private insurance covering them for the duration of their university stay. For students from Quebec: form SE401 Q 106 Exchange students from outside the EEA are exempt from student contributions if they have a certificate of affiliation to a medical insurance scheme in their home country. In all cases, the certificate must be in English, and, if possible, translated into French. • Reimbursement of medical costs For holders of a European medical insurance card or form SE401 Q106, essential medical treatment is covered by: la Caisse Primaire Assurance Maladie de l'Essonne Boulevard François Mitterand - 91039 Evry Public Access: rue Ambroise Croizat Tel. 01 60 79 79 79 - Fax : 01 60 79 78 91 www.cpam91.fr - email@example.com to which you must send: A photocopy of your European medical insurance card or form SE401 Q106 Your French bank account details (the relevé d'identité bancaire - RIB) or French postal account details (relevé d’identité postal –RIP) The papers (feuilles de maladie) and prescriptions given to you by the doctor. The stickers on the packets of the drugs should be stuck on the feuille de maladie. 19 Students benefiting from French Student Social Security must choose whether to be attached to Centre 601 or 61 at the time of registration. The selected centre will then send you a social security card. On presentation of this card in pharmacies, you will only have to pay that part of the cost of the medicines not covered by the Social Security. Students benefiting from voluntary insurance should contact their insurer directly. • Private health insurance Social Security does not reimburse all the costs of a medical visit or medicines. You are therefore advised to subscribe to private medical insurance, either in your home country or in France. More information can be obtained from "Mutuelle des étudiants", an insurer providing up to 100% cover. la Mutuelle des étudiants Tel. 08 10 60 06 01 - www.lmde.com or la SMEREP 2, place de la Poste - 91440 Bures sur Yvette Tel. 01 56 54 36 34 - www.smerep.fr 20 21 Daily Life in the Paris Region 22 Daily life • Banks You can open an account at the post office (La Poste) or any bank by simply presenting one form of ID (passport or national ID). You may also be asked for an admissions certificate and proof of funding (a grant or bursary certificate, for example) However, it is a good idea to obtain an international credit card before you leave for France. Banks are usually open Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to midday and 2pm to 5.30pm. • Letters The cost of sending a letter weighing less than 20g to other countries within the European Union is currently €0.53. • Transport The southern Paris region is served by RER line B. This line runs through the centre of Paris with stops at Châtelet-les-Halles and Gare du Nord. From these and other stations on the line, you can access the Paris Metro (RATP). If you intend to take the RER or Metro frequently you can buy a monthly pass (the Carte Orange). Prices are between €50.40 per month for zones 1 & 2 and €99.10 per month for zones 1 - 5. More information is available from most stations. (RATP info - Tel. 08 92 68 77 14/RATP info flash Tel. 08 10 03 04 05 + 3615 RATP - www.ratp.fr). For information The price for a book of 10 tickets for the Metro (Paris only) or buses is €10.50 - the price of a single ticket is €1.40. Carte Imagine R: this is a Carte Orange for students available for one year and payable over 9 months. The prices are between €271.10 for zones 1 & 2 and €587.60 for zones 1 - 5. This is half the price of the Carte Orange. • Expect a minimum monthly budget of 800€ As a student you can benefit from reductions in cinemas, theatres, museums and certain shops. The Centre National des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires has produced a brochure entitled "Je vais en France": www.crous-nancy-metz.fr/Venir_en_France/brochure.htm, which can be consulted at the cultural services section in French embassies and consulates in your home country. This brochure provides all the details you need on the practicalities of daily life in France. • National Holidays New Year's Day 1st January Easter Monday in March or April Mayday 1st May VE day 8th May Ascension A Thursday in May National Holiday 14th July Assumption 15th August All Saints Day 1st November Armistice Day 11th November Christmas Day 25th December • University holidays The university year usually starts around 15th September, especially for the Sciences (the exact date depends on the subject ; your course director should be able to provide you with more precise information), and finishes at the end of June.
