Access to education is the same for beneficiaries as for asylum seekers (see Reception Conditions: Access to Education). The main difference is linked to access to vocational training for adults. These trainings fall under the professional integration systems described in the section on Housing.
Beneficiaries’ children are allowed to get access to any school included into the national education system. They do not have to attend preparatory classes. In the event they have special needs, in terms of language or disability for example, they will be orientated accordingly to the general education system.
According to the OFII, 3,482 beneficiaries of international protection received a student scholarship in 2020. No data available for 2021
