The award of the “Welcome to France” Label offers us an opportunity to showcase our investment in developing the quality of our welcome structures and initiatives developed for incoming overseas students and to promote our courses internationally.
Awarded for a 4-year period, the Label evaluates the following five criteria:

The Label confirms the quality of the resources allocated by Institut Paul Bocuse for the welcome, well-being and support offered to overseas students. The School’s International Student Affairs Department is also available to help students deal with their administrative formalities upon arrival at the Campus. The aim is to help them fit in to their new environment as quickly as possible so that they can make the most of their student experience in France.
The Welcome in France Label is a sign of confidence in the quality of the welcome structures set up especially for international students and represents an unparalleled promotions and development tool for Institut Paul Bocuse.
