Do I need a visa to study French in Réunion?

No visa is required for EU/EEA/Swiss citizens staying in Réunion. In fact, as Réunion Island is officially a French department, visa requirements are generally the same as those in place for France. For non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizens, requirements may differ. Get in touch with our experts for more information.

What will I do on my course in Réunion?

Your French course in Réunion will combine language learning inside the classroom with further practice outside the classroom thanks to the exciting variety of leisure activities available on the island. Group lessons usually take place in the morning, while afternoon and weekends are filled with social activities and fun trips. However, you can also choose to have private lessons in the afternoon, and get an experienced, native-speaking teacher all to yourself!

Where will I live during my French course in Réunion?

Homestays tend to be the most popular choice among international students, as living with a local family offers a unique opportunity to practise French with native speakers on a daily basis as well as getting first-hand insights into the local culture. Other accommodation options available include apartments or hotels that may suit you better if you’re looking for a bit more privacy and independence.
