[help] studying in france and work/internship in switzerland. Is it possible?

Hi everyone, I am a non-eu citizen going to study in France.
This year, I have received an offer for a Master course of both KEDGE and INSEEC in France. Both are in Financial Field.
The only different is the program provided by INSEEC is taughted in French while the program provided by KEDGE is taughted in English.
With this economy right now, it is really hard for me to find an intership/job in anywhere in EU. However, I have a relative who works as a director of a Bank in Switzerland. She can recommend an internship job for me next year.
The huge problem is my visa is only allowed to work in another country beside France for 3 months while the internship program has to be at least 6 months for graduating.
An other complicated problem is my visa is regulated for 12month after 1 year I have to do some procedure to renew it in France. (My study course last 15 month) It will not be a problem if I can find an internship job in France and renew my visa. However, if I can't and I want to go for internship in Switzerland, how can I even possible to renew my visa in France and go to another country for an internship job ???
Anyone can help me with this??? PLZ!!!

Firstly what degree are you actually going to study for? If it's nothing to do with banking/finance you wouldn't be able to get an internship at your relative's bank.

Also an internship has to be mandatory for your course and you'd need a letter from whichever uni you end up attending to state this.

If the conditions can be met then you'd need to persuade the bank to apply for an internship permit for you.

So don't want to put a dampener on this but in many cantons such a permit won't easily be issued.

My girlfriend was flatly told last year she would not be accepted for an internship as the employer doesn't even bother applying for non-EU intern permits anymore, they all get rejected. So at least in GE and ZH it's not easy.

In her case we just got married a bit earlier but of course this solution is not available to all...

Agreed. Only in the last few days there was a query about how to get Nissan Switzerland to apply for an internship permit for a non-EU applicant - something which the company decided not to do in the end. If there are likely to be plenty of EU nationals they can choose from then many employers will simply opt for them because it's easier to get the permit.
