Can I pay for my education in several monthly installments?

EDUCA SWISS is the Swiss Foundation for the Promotion and Financing of Education. We support all educational projects, regardless of age, qualification or origin, as long as they pursue a professional goal. Thanks to our free coaching and the arrangement of educational loans at socially acceptable conditions, we help motivated people to achieve their personal goals.

In this way, we are supplementing the existing support and counselling services – especially for those who today fall through gaps in educational funding because they do not have sufficient access to scholarships or cannot be supported by their families.
