    Students not belonging to the EU have to apply for a residence permit if they enroll for more than three months.

Upon arrival the CiC administration will help them to prepare their file for the authorities. For students remaining less than three months, a tourist visa is generally sufficient.

    • Winter : pullovers, sweatshirts, light pullovers, but also a rain coat. The outside temperature may be warm, but you must protect yourself against humidity as in any other seaside town.
