It is mandatory to buy student insurance before your arrival in France (by bank transfer) if you are a non-European student.
The insurance you bought in your country is not valid in France and you have to take one in France, except if you already have an international insurance that covers you in France.
We suggest you take a short-term insurance for your visa purposes as you’ll have to take another one in France when you are here.

If you are a European student, you have to bring the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) card with you. The EHIC card must cover at least the period of your exchange programme in France.
