EDHEC student loans

EDHEC grants honorary loans to students whose families have difficulty financing their studies.

The honorary loan, amounting to €2,500, can be granted during each academic year. The loan has a 0% interest rate and must be repaid within 4 years after the end of the studies.


EDHEC has set up various payment methods to facilitate the organisation of each family:

  • Payment in one instalment at the start of the course,
  • Payment by monthly direct debit over 4 years to lighten the load.

Agreements with BNP Paribas, the Caisse d'Epargne, LCL and Société Générale allow students to take out deferred repayment bank loans at very preferential rates (around 1%) without parental guarantee (under certain conditions).3



EDHEC offers a "study insurance" which protects families in the event of an accident and pays the tuition fees when they encounter major risks (death, cessation of activity and loss of income of the "financial guarantor" following a redundancy, an illness, an accident...).


EDHEC International Mobility Scholarships


To support our students in their mobility and international exchange projects, a grant of up to €5,500 may be awarded depending on eligibility.



GETT Master 1 students can benefit from a grant of €4,000 over 2 years, depending on their family income, to finance their two years of study abroad.

EDHEC set up the COVID 19 solidarity emergency fund in April 2020 to help students in financial difficulty due to the health crisis.
For each donation made, the school will match the same amount, up to an overall budget of €200,000.
The fund was endowed with €350,000.

Apprenticeship is the most financially advantageous solution for students: the company with which the student signs an apprenticeship covers the training costs and pays a salary throughout the 24-month contract

Each year, 370 apprentices, i.e. 6% of students, have their tuition fees covered 100% by the company.

Aid for student life (housing, transport, insurance, etc.)


Most student tenants are eligible for benefits from the French Family Benefit Office (CAF) to cover part of their rent costs. However, these allowances are not student grants: they are available to all those on low incomes.

To receive these aids, you will have to:

  • Be a signatory to a rental contract (the lease cannot be signed by your parents)
  • Occupy the dwelling as a principal residence (rental receipts must be issued in the name of the recipient)
  • Have an income below the thresholds indicated.

There are two types of housing aid paid by the CAF: the social housing allowance (ALS) and the personal housing allowance (APL). However, these two types of aid cannot be combined.
