International students

Welcome to Paris and to Ecole d’Assas !

étudiant Erasmus+ Assas kinéEcole d’Assas is part of the Erasmus+ Programme since 2014 and welcomes European and International students for internships periods.

Incoming international students are enrolled at the college and must therefore undergo some administrative procedures before the mobility, with the help of the International Department. Students receive a student card.

On the first day, international students are met by the teaching and administrative staff who will be their referents during their time at Ecole d’Assas.

Students also meet students representatives who help them settle into the college.


Internship requests must be done at least 8 month before the beginning of the mobility period.


Due to new guidelines from the French Department of Health, related to internships in physiotherapy, Ecole d’Assas had to change its internal procedures.

Besides vaccination against Diphtheria, Tetanus and Poliomyelitis (unique injection DTPolio), students must be immunized against Tuberculosis. Concerning this disease, students must have received an intradermal tuberculin test (recently performed). The result of this test must be communicated to Ecole d’Assas.

In addition to that, students must be vaccinated against HEPATITIS B.

The vaccination guidelines are as follows:

• First injection of the vaccine at least four months before the beginning of the internship.
• Second injection, one month later.
• Third injection, one month later again.
• A checking serology one month again.
• The result of this checking serology must be communicated to the Ecole d’Assas.

Therefore, a total time of a minimum of 4 months.

We raise awareness on the fact that without the checking serology result or if this result is negative, i.e. lower than 10 UI/l, the student will not perform the intended internship .


Student must be covered by a civil and Professional insurance.

To get this to work properly, Ecole d’Assas asks incoming sudents to prepare their mobility 6 months before the beginning of the internship. One month and one week before the beginning of the internship the Ecole d’Assas International Department must be in possession of all the compulsory documents.
