Warning: newcomers subject to visa regulations must prove that their budget can cover a one-year stay. The Crous social services will evaluate difficulties accordingly.

The aim of this assistance is to make sure you can carry on your studies despite a serious situation that may arise during the academic year. A social worker will assess your situation.

In order to apply for this help you must be a student following basic training.

Examination of applications: the student’s file is presented anonymously to the committee chaired by the director general of the Crous. If necessary, a preliminary interview can be organized between the applicant and a Crous social worker. This interview enables the assessment of the student’s overall situation, focused on their academic history and the difficulties they encounter.

The committee issues a notice of allocation or non-allocation of specific aid, which is then submitted to the director general for validation.
