Your first day in France

First day


This is it! Your flight is booked. You are ready to leave home and are looking forward to your months in France if a little worried. It is probably the first time you are leaving home for such a long period of time.


It will help to know that we will look after you on arrival. We will explain to you how to get here and by the time you arrive you will have exchanged numerous emails with Maria-Angélina BEAUCOURT, who is in charge of Incoming students, and you will feel that you already know her.
Once you know your arrival details, do not forget to get in touch with her. You will decide with her what is the best way to get to CPE Lyon, according to your arrival day and time.

If we have booked an university accommodation for you


It is best to plan to arrive during the week and during working hours as the Reception Desk at the Residence does not open on Saturdays and Sundays and does not accept admissions after 4.00 pm (Monday to Friday). All the procedure would have been explained to you before arrival by email and in an official letter.

If you have booked private accommodation


You can arrange details with your landlord but your welcome on arrival at CPE will obviously be the same!
