Covid-19: Message from French authorities for French students enrolled in the UK [fr]

This message from the French authorities is intended for French students currently enrolled in higher education institutions abroad:

  • If you have a place to stay in the UK for the duration of the lockdown, it is recommended that you stay there. Traveling to France is difficult at the moment, and travel in general is a health risk in the current context.
  • If you have decided to go back to France, you will need an international travel declaration, downloadable from the website of the Consulate General of France in London. Please refer to the Consulate website for any queries about Covid-19. You can also call + 44 (0) 207 073 12 55 or write to:
  • This decision is the responsibility of the student. The costs for early return are to be borne by the student unless otherwise stipulated by their home university in France.

French students engaged in international mobility under the ERASMUS + programme will be able to keep their grant throughout their stay abroad until their return to France. As the European Commission has invoked the force majeure clause included in the ERASMUS+ agreements, the additional costs inherent in the return of French students to France can be covered by the programme.
