Finance & Scholarships

There are many options available to you to finance your studies


Work-study / Apprenticeship

The tuition fees for work-study students are paid by the host company. There are two types of work-study contract:

  • a professionalisation contract, accompanied by a remuneration of 80% of the SMIC (taxable).
  • an apprenticeship contract, with remuneration of 53 or 61% of the SMIC (non-taxable).


Our programs accessible in work-study:

BTS Bachelor Pro Path

On the Nice campus, the first two years of our BTS Bachelor Pro Path, dedicated to the preparation of the BTS exam, can be followed in work-study (for all specialisations).

Grande École Programme

In Paris, as in Nice, the master cycle can be followed in work-study (for all the majors of the 4th and 5th years).

The CROUS scholarship

If you are under 28 years of age, you can benefit from a CROUS scholarship, under certain conditions and depending on the programme. The amount of the grant is determined on the basis of family income, according to a scale established each year by the Ministry of National Education. These scholarships can be combined with those from the IPAG.

European and regional scholarships

If you wish to study or do an internship abroad, in Europe or elsewhere, some scholarships may cover part of the costs of your project:


This financial aid enables students to finance their study abroad or internship in one of the countries of the European Union but also in Turkey, Iceland, Norway, Macedonia and Liechtenstein.

As part of a study stay, it is allocated for a period of 3 to 12 months and the amount varies from €150 to €300 per month depending on the country. For an internship, the duration is from 2 to 12 months and the amount is from €300 to €450. In both cases, the Erasmus+ grant can be cumulated with the CROUS grant allocated on social criteria.

Regional Grants AMIE et PRAME

The AMIE (Aide à la Mobilité Internationale des Étudiants) grants from the Ile-de-France region and PRAME (Programme Régional d'Aide à la Mobilité Étudiante) from the Sud PACA region are regional grants, which cannot be combined with the Erasmus+ grant. They can cover part of the costs related to your stay abroad.
