If you are coming for a period between 3 and 6 months, you need to apply for a temporary study visa. You will be able to stay in France without having to obtain the student residence permit. Be careful, this visa cannot be extended.
If you are coming for a period of between 3 and 12 months, you need to ask for a student long-term visa. You will get the “carte de séjour étudiant” from the Préfecture which can be renewed after the first year.
Please note that the tourist visa for short stays (less than 3 months) cannot be turned into a long-term visa in Paris, and doesn’t allow for the acquisition of a residence permit.
