What is the Student Status?
If you are under 28 years old and are registered for at least 60 hours/month for more than 3 months at AFLyon, you will get the student status which gives you the right to:
• Work part-time
• Join the Student National Health Scheme (Sécurité Sociale étudiante)
• Access to student restaurants managed by C.R.O.U.S.
• Enjoy the same benefits as university students
In France, the National Heath Scheme (named Sécurité Sociale) reimburses your medical expenses if you are ill, injured or hospitalized.
If you are under 28 years old and are registered for at least 60 hours/month for more than 3 months at AFLyon, you must apply for Sécurité Sociale (217€) at your arrival. It is not mandatory for students coming from a EU country.

Registration will be considered from the date of your application.To register, you must provide a birth certificate (translated into French by a sworn translator) and open a personal bank account in France in order to submit your French bank details (called RIB).
If you are registered for at least 60 hours/month for more than 3 months at AFLyon and you are under 28 years old, there is no point in purchasing private insurance in your home country.
