    France has a great pool of truly world-class institutions, and Indian students always prefer going over there for higher education. Thousands of Indian student visas are granted every year, enabling Indian students to pursue higher education at France’s world’s top institutions. Students from science, technology, liberal arts, humanities, etc., apply for French Universities. It has always been a favored destination for Indian students when compared with other countries of the European Union.

    The Transition From Student To Work Visa

    Those students who went for a master’s or doctorate may change their visa status from student to employee. However, an application has to be made in this regard. Authorization Provisoire de sèjour (APS) is the extension that French authorities provide to international students to extend their visa by one year and let them gain some practical experience by working in France. The extension provided by APS is anywhere from four months to one year, and not everyone gets a visa for one year. Another one-year extension is offered to students from a select few countries, and fortunately, India is one of them, and now Indian students can get one more year extension due to the concerted efforts of the present government. 

    Many students sought the extension, but any further extension can only be provided if they apply for a work visa. A visa applicant must bear in mind that not all universities are eligible for getting their student APS visa. It’s better to confirm with the educational institution about the provision of getting an APS visa post completion of the course.
