Please, note that students can choose to do their internships anywhere in France. Their accommodation budget might vary depending on the city of choice.  The cost of living in big cities (Paris, Lyon, etc.) tend to be 30% higher than in smaller cities/provinces. Some employers might choose to offer accommodation to their interns but this option is not always available.
