The French Government has presented a roadmap on how to ease the restrictions and measures in place. In four stages, they would like to implement step-by-step criteria to reduce the current restrictions. For areas where the spread of COVID-19 is too high, the government reserves the right to apply “emergency brakes”.


For all students enrolled in an institution for higher education, the rule of having at least one day out of five in-person classes applies under strict health protocols. Several universities permit the students to have access to the following;


  • Pre-approved appointments for administrative services

  • Take away meals provided by the university canteen

  • Activities organized by student associations

  • Access to laboratories for doctoral students

  • Pre-approved appointments for libraries and facilities equipped with computers


All students have to adhere to the applicable screening policy by the French Government regarding self-tests.
