How do I pay for my studies?
French government financial support
Engineering courses all over the world are costly as they require technical equipment, laboratories and highly trained staff. However, the French government pays part of the tuition fees for French and foreign students who enrol on a national degree course such as those offered through the "n+i" network.
The French government directly finances higher education and thereby enables French and foreign students to significantly reduce the cost of their studies. This automatic allowance covers tuition fees and a portion of the cost of housing (APL aid) and student restaurants.
Thanks to France's policy in terms of hosting foreign students, the reduction in the real cost of studies, which can be likened to an “automatic” grant from France, is at least € 20,000 for a 2-year training programme!
The registration costs offered by schools in the "n+i" network take account of funds received from the French state.
Additional financing options
The outstanding costs to be covered by the student are therefore "automatically" reduced, but a number of additional funding options exist to help finance the remainder.
- Personal finances (family) or loans,
- Grants from foreign nations (BGE) Contact the relevant authorities from your country of origin,
- Grants from the French state (BGF) Contact the French Embassy or the Campus France services of your country of origin ,
- EU grants (Erasmus + programme etc.),
- Grants from French local authorities The Network "n+i" will advise you according to the school you will go to.
- Grants from companies,
- Grants from Network "n+i",
- Part time work or a year out to work, You hold a long-stay visa VLS-TS or residency permit allowing you to work
The Network "n+i" can support you in looking for scholarships. It is in this case necessary that you validate your application form on the “n+1” website in session 1 preferably.
Grants are awarded on a merit basis and the "n+i" network cannot be held responsible if a student is not awarded a grant.
