The application process depends on whether you are an exchange student or an international student:
Exchange Student: You are an exchange student if your university has a cooperation agreement with the Université François-Rabelais (Erasmus, CREPUQ, student exchange agreements…). Once nominated by your home university, you will spend one semester or one year at the Université François-Rabelais, and you will choose among a wide range of courses. You will remain registered in your home university and will thus pay tuition fees there. Your home university will then recognized the courses attended at Tours.
International Student: You are an international student if you do not benefit from an exchange cooperation agreement. You will thus be registered at the Université François-Rabelais, where you will attend a degree program and pay tuition fees. Several steps have to be followed to register, according to your status.
