Well I screwed up!
My student visa expired back in November and here I am needing to renew ASAP! Have been on medical leave so left in October withou renewing.
How can I do it and where do I go? I am not in France so am not illegally staying there but do want to re-enter to continue my stay there, can anyone tell me what is my best recourse now?
Also, I would like to change from a student visa to long stay- is this possible?
Thank you.

If you are back in the US (your "location" tag said London, which is why I thought you were there), you have to start from scratch with the French consulate that covers the area where you are currently living.

You will have to get a new visa altogether. It's not a renewal if you want to change status. And it's also not a renewal if you're no longer resident in France.
Cheers,
Bev
