    Hi guys,

    I need your help, i need 75.000 $ for my 3 years of study, and i don't know how to get it.

    I'm currently working, and going back to school will make me loose my actual income.

    I thought about crowdfunding, but is there a way to be on top on Indiegogo for example ? To get viral ?

    Thanks

    For crowdfunding, you must have some serious skills which most others don't!! Your best bet would be to take out a student loan. If you're doing a professional course and have been admitted into any Tier 1 universities or colleges then you must have no problem in securing a loan!!

    A french student ....

    Make like the others: prostitute. Or work with Mc Donald's.

    75.000 dollars ... It must be a private university, right?

    You want a good advice? Make a crowdfunding, but be a victim: If you are a victim, you can earn money (in France, of course).

    Maybe give university test and get top rankings and score really good? Of course, Every university around the world tries to help genius students with low income background. You can easily get help by university itself as they will cut down fee to good extend. Then you will need to earn those few thousand dollars by working hard in a company (If you are pretty good at studies, You can get high paying job) or take student loan.

    I have never heard any 25K€/Year school in France.

    You will never get it from crowdfunding sorry to break your dreams.
    Just keep working and save money, borrow at bank and then start. You can also try to learn whatever business you want on your freetime. Internet is full of free courses.

    Yeah, I think a student loan is your best bet and in most cases it's well worth it :)

    Why should other people pay for your education?
    Are you studying to become a Doctor or similar profession which can help society as a whole?

    You don't have some money to study ------> Work until you have some money to study.

    I don't know about France in specific but I am pretty sure that there are plenty of student loans you can easily get.
    If you're living in the European Union and want to study, it's always possible. You just need to pay some money back.
    I Germany we can apply for "BaföG" which pays you up to around 600€ per month and you only need to pay half of it back. And that's just one thing you could apply for. I am pretty sure there is something similar in France.
