BANK LOANS

It is extremely difficult for an international student to obtain a student loan in France. In addition to other prerequisites, loan candidates must present a co-guarantor who resides in France. Therefore, we advise international students planning to arrange for a French student loan to make alternative plans for paying tuition before enrolling at GGSB.
