Schuster joined Leicester from Perpignan last summer, but he will now spend the remainder of this season with the Warriors.
Becasseau is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on a neck problems, while John Andress and Euan Murray have both been out with injuries.
Schuster can play at either loosehead or tighthead and collected a Top 14 winners' medal with Perpignan in 2009.
The 28-year-old made his international debut for France against Fiji in November 2010, and Warriors director of rugby Dean Ryan is delighted to have signed someone of Schusters calibre.
Ryan said: "With the injury to John Andress and the fact that Euan Murray has only recently returned from a lengthy lay-off, it was important to bring in a tighthead prop for the rest of the season.
"I am delighted that we are able to recruit someone of Jerome's experience."
