It is very difficult to survive in France if you cannot speak French and you can forget about getting white collar jobs

I have not read so much or anything about study in france.is it that the place is difficult to survive for nigerian students or the admission and visa processes are difficult?

All of the above

Once again, I'm sorry for sharing the information late. This is my first time of applying for a Schengen visa.

I am a Nigerian studying IT program at an Asian University. All I did was: -

1.) Registered and paid for a conference (The conference is about IT and latest technologies in France)
2.) Requested that the organizer send me an invitation and a copy to the French embassy
3.) Collected letter from my school showing that they are aware of my travel plans
4.) Booked an insurance online for 35 EURO
5.) Booked for hotel reservation and airline (All online and free). Only a credit card is required to guarantee a hotel but nothing is charged
6.) Printed my bank statement via online bank portal (I generated 3 months record from my account online and printed it out)

I submitted all these documents to the French embassy and was told to come back after two weeks.

After the 10th day of submission, I received a call from the French consulate asking me to explain the purpose of my trip to France. I explained everything to him including my future plans (I told him the truth) and at the end of the conversation, he said he will send all the information to France for review. He also told me that he can not guarantee that the visa will be issued but I should come on the given date.

Four days later, I went to the embassy and was given my passport. I opened it and viola, I saw a Schengen visa on it. Was impressed because the whole process is so easy and I did almost everything online.

how did u book for online airline reservation free and how many days does it take before they cancel the free airline reservation, cos I have been searching for where to get a free airline reservation in order to tender along side with my other documents at the French embassy, somebody please give me a link for free airline booking for visa application .

Hello,
I got a scholarship to Grenoble for a PhD . Fully sponsored. But, I am confused about the certificate of accommodation

Clearly getting Schengen visa through the French Embassy is a lot easier than through Belgium Embassy with intent to visit Netherlands. Ladies and gents have had harrowing experiences at the Belgium Embassy in Abuja.

okay, got a scholarship to UJF...
The accommodation certificate is one which you get when you apply for a room. It shows thzt you have a room or are about to get a room and It should be signed and should contain your full duration of study period. I got mine directly from my school's accommodation office. Try doing one or two google searches to see if you can contact private landlords. They give this certificate too.

I saw this post just want to give some pointers on French administration (includes embassy & consulates).

In July & August, many public servants in France administration are on vacation, so the administrative process is really slow. I have a friend from Nigeria whose French student visa took 3months to be approved, and she lost some of her money deposited for accommodation. So my advice is apply as soon as possible, and anticipate delays. France is not known for efficient administrative process at all, I know this because I live in France.
