The EBI is a non-profit association (Law 1901) and a private technical college. With the “Taxe d’Apprentissage” and state subsidies, the school partly self-finances the overall cost of tuition to reduce the amount of fees paid by the student.
Tuition fees can be paid by monthly bank transfer or by cheque (2 cheques per semester), at no extra cost. This amount includes all educational services (including photocopies), computer access, sports and social security coverage for work-related accidents. Students are responsible for the CVEC, a possible student health insurance and personal documentation.
The EBI is a state-recognized school and is therefore authorized to receive students with CROUS scholarships. Applications are made to the CROUS of Versailles (www.crous-versailles.fr) from January 15 to May 31.Learn more
The school has set up a social fund to allow students with scholarships, if they so wish, to apply for an honorary loan, at a zero interest rate, repayable from the moment they enter working life.
The EBI works with two banking organizations, Caisse d'Epargne and BNP Paribas de Cergy, which ensure you the most attractive rates. These loans also help cover the costs of student life. The student repays the loan when he or she enters the workforce.
The housing supplement for students with a scholarship from level 2 who have to live in Cergy due to the distance of their family can be granted by the EBI Social Fund upon request of the student. The amount varies between 500 € and 1500 €.
