The Erasmus+ Master loan scheme

Spanish university graduates can benefit from €30 million worth in student loans for their Master's degrees, provided by the EU's Erasmus+ Master Loan Scheme in Spain.  The loans will be open to graduates from France taking their Master's degree in one of the 33 countries participating in Erasmus+.  
The Erasmus+ Master Loan Scheme facilitates access to student loans of up to €12,000 for a one-year Master's course or up to € 18,000 for a two-year Master's course taken abroad. The scheme complements the well-established short-term Erasmus+ study exchanges and offers graduates an easy and affordable way to support studies abroad, regardless of their social background or field of study.  

The scheme allows students to benefit from favourable loan terms, thanks to the Erasmus+ guarantee, which spreads the risk between the bank and the European Commission. This means students can apply for the loans with no required collateral, benefit from competitive interest rates and use a delayed pay-back option.  See Erasmus + Master Loans for full details of the scheme.

This is thanks to a guarantee agreement signed by the European Investment Fund (EIF) and Microbank in Spain, with the backing of the EU's Erasmus+ programme.
