  • Grants for international mobility,
  • Loans on trust and payment facilities

This scholarship is truly significant to me. It allows me to cover my living expenses that I would have difficulty meeting with my father's income alone.

LOANS ON TRUST

 

LOANS ON TRUST

 

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.

PAYMENT FACILITIES

 

PAYMENT FACILITIES

 

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.

ACADEMIC INSURANCE

 

ACADEMIC INSURANCE

 

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.).

LOCAL AUTHORITY BURSARIES

 

 

As the EDHEC International 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.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES

 

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES

 

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).

ASSISTANCE WITH ACCOMMODATION

 

ASSISTANCE WITH ACCOMMODATION

 

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.
