The tuition fees at EDHEC are “all-inclusive”, meaning that they include all administrative fees as well as :

  • lifelong access to the Career Centre, as part of a perfect continuum between the course and the Alumni Career Service;
  • access to all sporting facilities on the Nice and Lille Campuses;
  • access to all “EDHEC Young Entrepreneurs” Incubator services during and after the course;
  • access to the Learning Centre (libraries on campus, 24/7 online platform and databases);
  • academic exchanges and dual degrees abroad.



EDHEC significantly expanded its bursary policy in 2015-2016 through its EDHEC4ALL Programme, and has increased the budget for social inclusion by a factor of five in five years:

  • 20% of EDHEC students receive a social inclusion bursary;
  • EDHEC bursaries amount to €8.3 million in total, i.e. around 10% of the School’s budget;
  • the minimum annual bursary has increased from €1,400 to €2,000 per student.

Several options are available to students. Academic results may also be taken into account.



EDHEC grants loans on trust to students whose families find it hard to finance their studies. A loan on trust, which amounts to €2,500, may be granted for each academic year. This zero-rated loan is repayable within four years of the end of the course.



EDHEC has arranged various payment processes that make organising payments easier for each family, for instance payments in one instalment at the beginning of the course, or payment via a monthly direct debit over four years to lighten the burden.

Agreements with BNP Paribas, Caisse d’Epargne, LCL and Société Générale enable students to subscribe to deferred payment bank loans at highly preferential rates (around 1%) with no parental guarantee (under certain conditions).

Students who are foreign nationals must have a guarantor in France.



EDHEC offers an “academic insurance” policy, which protects families in the event of an accident and covers the course fees if they are affected by major risks (for example, if the “financial guarantor” dies, stops work or loses their source of income following redundancy, illness or an accident, etc.). The annual contribution to this insurance policy was €99 for the 2015-2016 financial year.



As the EDHEC BBA and Master’s Degree are recognised by the French Ministry of Higher Education, students who receive bursaries from French Regional University Grant Centres (CROUS) may continue to receive their grant.

Some French Departments or Regions also award bursaries under certain conditions. Please contact their departments directly.

Some countries award specific bursaries to their nationals. The student in question should contact the relevant government entities or organisations.



Students may receive Erasmus and Blériot bursaries for international exchanges. The amount of these bursaries depends on the destination country.



Students who are French or EEA nationals may receive a loan up to a maximum of €15,000 guaranteed by the French Government under certain conditions.



The various EDHEC BBA and Master’s Degree paths are packed with opportunities to learn more about the world of business. Every graduate ultimately accumulates many months of professional experience. Mandatory experiences for which students are paid include:

  • an apprenticeship is the most attractive financing solution: the company with which the student signs an apprenticeship contract covers their course fees, and pays them a salary throughout the term of the 24-month contract;
  • company internships also enable students to receive compensation;
  • student jobs and assignments are regularly offered by student organisations (EDHEC Junior Consulting and EDHEC Jobs Management).



Most students who rent are eligible for a benefit from the French Family Benefit Office (CAF) to cover part of their rent. However, these grants are not “student grants” – they are for anyone with a low income. To receive these grants, you will need to:

  • be the signatory of a rental agreement (which means that the lease cannot be in your parents’ names);
  • effectively occupy the accommodation as your main residence (the rent receipts must be drawn up in the beneficiary’s name), and have an income that falls below certain thresholds.

There are two kinds of accommodation grants paid by the CAF: the Social Housing Grant (ALS) and the Personal Housing Allocation (APL). Unfortunately, these grants cannot be combined.
