For non-French school students => In accordance with local law, any internship in France will need to be managed under the auspices of an internship agreement signed with a school or university.

The tripartite agreement (i.e., between you, the university and the workplace) can be signed with a foreign school/university, but the procedure should take three to six months to set up. The agreement should outline a project you would work on (which the embassy would help draft) and be submitted to the French “prefecture de Paris” at least three months before the proposed commencement of the internship. The prefecture will make a decision on whether the internship can proceed.

Moreover, you should request the appropriate visa to leave/study or work in France (please note that unfortunately, the Embassy does not provide sponsorship)
