Student services

We really are here to help. We have a dedicated team who can provide advice on the following issues – as well as things that didn’t make the list!

  • Student visas
  • Housing contracts
  • Opening a bank account
  • Course information and grades
  • French social security insurance
  • Campus information
  • CAF housing allowance
  • Student associations
  • Help from French students
We also have a student association for international students – the International Connection Team. This team is made up of enthusiastic French students who are here to give you insider tips on life in Nantes, activities and cultural events, and studying at Audencia. You’ll meet them during your orientation week at Audencia!

Housing services

You have a lot of options, including rooms in student residencies; homestays with local families; and private apartments, studios and flats. We have a housing platform that will give you information on what’s available. You can access it easily from the student intranet once you’ve been accepted to your programme and completed registration.

Audencia's housing platform will enable you to:

  • Find a rental close to campus
  • Find your international or French roommate(s) and form shared rentals 
  • Find a subletting 
  • Find a homestay with a local family

Library services

Throughout the year, the library team receives, informs and trains students in documentary research methodology, on how to consult databases, format bibliographical references and provides students with information on such issues as plagiarism.

Medical services

If you are a non-European student and will be studying at Audencia, we recommend you purchase international travel insurance, liability insurance and international health insurance that is valid for the entire duration of your stay in France.Health insurance in France may be very different from the insurance you have at home. 

Campus life

Audencia’s main campus in Nantes is one of the most beautiful in France. We designed it specifically to give you a high-quality learning environment. We are housed in a 23,000m² purpose-built campus opposite the University of Nantes, so student life here is bustling. We also have campuses in Paris, Beijing and Shenzhen.

Sports facilities

Audencia offers you access to a sports hall equipped for team sports such as basketball, volleyball and football. You can also take advantage of our well-equipped gym as well as a fitness centre for activities such as dance, yoga and more. A public swimming pool and ice-skating rink are within seven minutes by foot.

Student clubs

Get involved in activities you love and meet students from different programmes, backgrounds and countries. With a wide range of on-campus clubs and organisations, you are sure to find a group of people you connect with.

Audencia Business School is amongst the 1% of business schools holding all top international academic accreditations – EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. We are known globally for education and research in the fields of business and management.
