Hello, I finished my one year Masters in France in 2016 and I got my APS extension for one year. Due to the family situations, I returned to my home country (India) and I didn’t go to France after that. Now, I live in Poland under a student visa (doing research) till October 2019 and I am applying for a second Masters program in France. My question is 1) Can I get a student visa if I got admission to a French university? If yes, can I process my visa from Poland? 2) Can I apply for APS again once I finished my second Masters in France? Please give me a reply to this. Thanks in advance
