Social security insurance
If you are from the EU, you remain affiliated to the health insurance scheme in your home country and must request a European Health Insurance Card from your home country, valid for the duration of your exchange, or the provisional S1 form.
If you are not an EU national, you must obtain health insurance in your home country, valid for the duration of your exchange.
The health insurance centre chosen by the student during registration will proceed with social allowances.
Complementary health insurance (Mutuelles)
To complement their standard student health insurance, students choose between two complementary health insurance programs: the LMDE (La Mutuelle des étudiants) or the SMEREP (Société mutualiste des étudiants de la région parisienne). Students are required to obtain compulsory Assurance responsabilité civile (civil liability insurance) coverage for the full school year (October 1st to September 30th of the following year). Information on coverage offered by these programs is provided with your registration file.
Consultations with psychologists are available to the student body for two days each month (Tuesday and Thursday) between October and June. Students can access these consultations free of charge on appointment and without appointment. Appointments are made directly with the psychologists.

Every student must provide a public liability insurance for the whole school year at the time of registration.
In most cases, housing insurances also ensure civil liability. If not, students can subscribe a specific insurance to one of the complementary student health insurances.
Harassment monitoring unit
A monitoring unit has been set up to listen to and support people who are victims of harassment or discrimination within the school. The unit is made up of seven members including two teachers, two members of administrative staff, two students and the equality and discrimination prevention representative. The unit receives and deals with accounts or reports and offers victims an interview with at least two members of the unit. It drafts a response to each report and sends it to the School management. The unit is informed of any follow-up to reports, in particular when a disciplinary sanction is pronounced by the institution or legal proceedings are undertaken.
