Grants and Scholarships

In the chronological order of the registrations to AIM, the first three students who have been awarded a Mention Très bien in the Baccalauréat général (France), will be granted 50% of the tuition fees the first year.

The following years, to continue to benefit from the same 50% bursary, these students will have to be in the top 3 of the year rankings in their class according to the conditions set out in the Internal Rules.

This opportunity (-50% for the 2nd and 3rd years), with the same rules, is also open to all students after their first-year studies at AIM.

Also, there are students who – at their request – receive scholarships granted by public and private organizations (especially hotels).

Paid internships

Students will earn at least 660€ net/month for any internship completed in France (up to 19 months cumulative over the course of the three-year Bachelor of Science program).

Bank loans

AIM works with the Société Générale bank, which offers our students already resident in France with parents (for parental guarantee) preferential rates  and repayment facilities.
Do not hesitate to ask your bank or ask us for contact details for the Société Générale.

Working while studying at AIM

This is not recommended during the first year, but the schedules during the 2nd and 3rd years of the Bachelor program are designed to enable students to take on a part-time professional activity for up to 20 hours per week.
