Student Loans

Prodigy Finance

International Students from 150 different nationalities admitted to the MSc in Sustainability Transformation may now apply to Prodigy Finance loans. Contrary to the banks in France, Prodigy does not require a collateral or co-signer. These loans are granted on the student's future earning potential and do not take into account credit history.  Students may apply online on the Prodigy website. There is no hidden fee or early repayment fee. Interest rates may vary depending on individual profiles. Funds are directly disbursed to the school in euro (€) so no exchange rates are borne by the student. Disbursement starts from September and loan application processing time may go up to a month and a half. The sooner you apply, the better. We advise you to read the Prodigy website carefully to check your eligibility before applying.

Bank Loans

As an ESSEC student, you can take out a preferential rate bank loan with the Cergy branches of the banks LCL, Société Générale and BNP Paribas which covers full tuition and is repaid starting at the end of your first year of work.

Loan applicants are required to have a guarantor living in France. According to the banks, the guarantor must earn enough to cover the monthly loan payments and be a French citizen, a close family member and/or both. Additional fees and expenses will be the responsibility of the student.

US Federal & Private Loans

Many US citizens or permanent residents opt to take out the US Federal Stafford and private Sallie Mae loans. These loans can cover up to the full cost of attendance and all applicants having a co-signer in the US are eligible for these loan programs. ESSEC is listed as “ESSEC Business School", and has a code number of G30959.

Student Jobs
