Hello I am very interested in becoming in Au Pair in France I have a few questions mainly questions on when I should actually go.
I really want to start next fall but the thing is I am still in college and would have to pay back my student loans if I am not a full-time student, I think you get a six month grace period but I would be in France(hopefully) for ten months. I was looking at the French Visa requirements and one of them is proof of being a student, if I wait until I graduate will I still be considered a student? So I'm not exactly sure when would be a good time to go through with this experience.
Also is it better to go through a program like InterExchange or is it better to find a family on your own?
Thank you for any help I really appreciate it.
