acc&ss Paris-Est’s Personalized Support

You are invited to contact the acc&ss Paris-Est team directly for the following steps in your process :

  • We act as liaisons with certain police headquarters in the Île-de-France Region for researchers at member establishments of Paris-Est Sup. In this capacity, we facilitate the registration of your application for the scientists' residence permit (Scientifique, Passeport Talent Chercheur, Passeport Talent Famille)
  • We offer free classes in French as a second language for our PhD students, researchers, and their partners
  • We also manage the circuit of approval for hosting agreements (Convention d'accueil) for the large majority of the member institutions of Paris-Est Sup
  • If you need to sign up for social security as a non-European citizen, we help connect you to the appropriate healthcare insurance fund (L'Assurance Maladie)
  • We have a personalized approach in supporting you in your housing search: you can apply for your housing at the International Residence here
  • With the help of Paris-Est Sup, we organize cultural visits for PhD students, researchers, and their families.
