Online applications for Monaco’s foreign language learning support scheme have now opened.  

The Department of National Education, Youth and Sports has launched a scheme to help improve the foreign language skills of the population. 

It is open to students enrolled at schools or higher education establishments, civil servants, Monegasque nationals and their families, and foreign residents who have lived the Principality for a minimum of 10 consecutive years.  

The types of courses covered by the scheme vary according to the applicant.

Secondary school pupils, for example, must choose a language that is already being taught at a state or private school in Monaco. The funding will help cover the costs of five courses lasting between two weeks and two months outside of school hours. For students that are studying English+ or are enrolled in a European Section or International Section, the number of stays are unlimited in number, but are covered by the same time periods.  

University students can benefit from a similar offer, with funding available for two stays lasting between two weeks and two months or one stay lasting two months to the equivalent of a university year.  

All applications must be submitted by 30th August. For more information, click here
