Work/study


For the past several years, the ISC Paris Group has given students the option to pursue work/study programs under an employment or apprenticeship contract.

More than 200 students participate in this program each year, in our Bac+3 to Bac+5 programs:
– Third year of the Bachelor Bac+3 program
Grande École program at the Bac+5 level, in the Master 1 or 2 programs
MSc program at the Bac+5 level in MSc1 and MSc2.

Corporate internships


For students who choose our traditional programs, internships are required each year. Internships are required for management students; they complement the academic experience and Student Enterprise experiences, and they allow students to fund part of their tuition.

Gap year


Students in the Grande École and Bachelor programs have the option, through ISC Paris Grande École, to take a gap year for work experience in France or in another country.
Some students use this time for an academic exchange, while others pursue a professional opportunity that helps to fund their final year of studies. Many do this in countries outside France.

Paid employment


The ISC Paris Group organizes class schedules so that students can take on paid employment throughout the year. Students who wish to, can work alongside their studies.
The ISC Network and ISC Junior Enterprise Student Enterprises run a job service that helps students find temporary or longer-term assignments paying 9-10 euros per hour.

A no-fee payment plan


The ISC Paris Group offers the option of paying tuition in nine monthly payments
For example, tuition in our Bachelor program is 7,950 euros for the 2020/2021 academic year. Each month from September to May, you will pay 7,944 euros, with installment payments made toward your full tuition balance.
Tuition in our Grande École program is 11,300 euros for the pre-masters program and 11,500 euros for the Master 1 and 2 programs, which will cost you between 1,170 euros and 1,189 euros each month, with installment payments made toward your full tuition balance.

Bank loans at attractive rates


The ISC Paris Group and our Student Enterprises have negotiated preferred customer agreements with various banks, at interest rates from 0,9 to 1% on student loans.
The advantage of a student loan is that you can concentrate fully on your studies. Loan payments do not begin until after you begin working, and you repay them over many years according to the loan terms.
Our banking partners include the Caisse d’Épargne and BNP Paribas. We are negotiating other partnerships.
