However, the international office of the school can provide assistance in terms of relevant information.

As things stand currently, France is in a better situation compared to India but the pandemic comes with uncertainty and the situation has been constantly changing and evolving and a clarity on this would be available closer to the travel date. However, candidates can be rest assured that if the situation is favourable and there are no government restrictions, the school will leave no stone unturned to help them travel to France for the third semester.
