Check list for Schengen Visa through French Embassy:

10. Letter from university (professor) is saying that your travel expenses will bear by the university (professor).

On the same day you have to submit your application in person, give biometric and interview.

Appear in the interview >>> Get you visa stamped in your passport (They will tell you passport collection time).

Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

9-10 does not apply to you if you are funding yourself and you are just going as a tourist.
