OFII

If you are a non EU-student, you have to have your visa validated by the OFII (Office Français de l'Immigration et de l'Intégration) in the first month following your arrival in France.

The International Relations Department will assist you with the application process.

The embasssy will have given you an OFII form to complete and to send to the OFII. Please complete it and submit it to the International Relations Department with a copy of your passport + visa + stamp of entry into France (Europe).
The International Relations Department will send it for you to the OFII.

Residence Permit Renewal

When you arrived in France for the first year, you were given a student long-stay visa and the OFII sticker validated it as your residence permit in France.

Should you continue your studies at Centrale Nantes for a second year, you must renew it and apply for a student residency permit (titre de séjour étudiant). The French institution in charge of the renewal of student residency permits is the local Préfecture.
