5. International Students Welcome Desk

The International Students Welcome Desk opens its doors to international students in September on the Plat d'Etain site in Tours.

As part of the « Choose France » national strategy, the University of Tours will gather the actors and welcome services of international students at a single event, the International Students Welcome Desk.
Our partners and services will help you go through your paperwork as soon as you arrive and inform you about the services you will be provided with while you are a student at the University of Tours.
