Schedule for Applying for the EURECOM Internship
Ask the teacher to negotiate the internship at EURECOM
Prepare the English CV to the teacher for teacher negotiating the internship with the professor who at EURECOM
HR send the file named “2B-STAGIAIRE_Formulaire accueil” for filling the basic information
After confirming the internship, you will receive the EURECOM HR email. The file will need to be filled up with your basic information. At the same time, you must buy the airplane ticket, book the room where you will stay in France, and buy the insurance.
For tickets, I recommend buying a round-trip ticket as it will be cheaper. I bought a ticket for the emirates about a 20-hour flight. You can choose a few days before and after the date to find the cheapest air ticket.
For the room in France, there are two ways to book in usual. One is booking on Airbnb, which can reduce some administrative processes such as home insurance, guarantee, etc. Another is booking the room on the website from EURECOM named Studapart. The second need to pay some fee for the platform and deal with the guarantee problem. When you communicate with the landlord, if you can use France, it will be more polite.
Insurance will be used on the internship agreement and the application for the VISA. The period of insurance needs to cover the period of internships and include medical insurance and personal liability. I bought the insurance from Fubon named “一期築夢”. The insurance needs to obey the rule of the Schengen Area.
Receive the internship agreement and run the signature process
After sending back the “2B” file, you will receive the internship agreement. You need to run the process for signature. It includes you, the Academic supervisor, and the legal representative of your University.
Receive the original internship agreement and invitation letter
After sending back the internship agreement, HR will send the original internship agreement and invitation letter to you by UPS. At the same time, HR will send your internship agreement to Franch Authorities for validation.
Receive the validation of agreement internship from Franch Authorities
When waiting for 2-4 weeks, you will receive the certificate of the validation from the HR.
Apply for the VISA
