What is pre-registration?

The Alliance Française of Lyon offers, to students who need a "student visa" or a "long stay visa",  to pay a part of their total order at the time of the online registration. A pre-registration is not a booking and does not guarantee a place in the chosen course. Your registration will be confirmed once the full payment has been received in due time.



You can Pre-register if:

1. You need a "Student" or a "long stay" visa

2. You want to register for at least 4 months of intensive or extra-intensive General French day courses in our school

3. You need to pre-register at least 3 months before the beginning of your course 


How does it work?

To complete your pre-registration, you will have to pay a deposit of 180€ for each month purchased (this deposit acts as part of the tuition fees and reduces the tuition fees payable on registration). As an example, if you pre-register for 6 months, you will have to pay the following:

- yearly registration fees

- fees for accommodation assistance (if you want to use our accommodation service)

- pre-registration fees of 180€ per month purchased (180€*6= 1080€)
