Scholarships and facilitations
IED has been working for years to support the brightest, most motivated students with a system of financial facilitations, based on both merit and financial circumstances. Thanks to our arrangements with leading credit institutes, students can fund their training with loans at special rates. See also the “Right to Education” page.
For registration for the first year of the three-year courses, payment is calculated based on the income bracket of the student’s family.
