IED has the following financing possibilities available for its students: 


IED has an agreement with Santander Bank for the financing of its programmes. 

You may consult the conditions in further detail via this link.



IED offers a financing service for its students through Prodinamia, a company specialised in these types of loans.

Prodinamia works with different financial institutions to find the best solution for each student. 

IED offers the possibility of this service by Prodinamia at no cost to the student. Prodinamia takes care of each and every step up to the signing of the loan.


As annual and variable payments are made from one academic year to the next, it is not possible to structure this kind of financing as consumer finance. Because of this, we employ financing from bank branches, making it necessary to open a bank account and take out an associated life insurance policy.

We have developed the possibility for IED students to finance their entire degree from the outset by offering a loan with partial drawdowns. In this way, the student is able to draw funds from a credit line from one year to the next. The model includes the possibility of as many years’ grace period as the degree lasts, so that during your studies you will only pay a reduced rate, consisting only of the interest without the loan capital. The maximum repayment term of the loan is 10 years, making it a very convenient financing mechanism at the best price on the market.


Prodinamia offers a dedicated loan to finance a service, paid directly from the bank to IED. 

You can finance 100% of the course without having to change your account; the only relationship with the bank is the loan, and it is paid directly into your usual account.

The loan is not subject to taking out life insurance or other products that make the operation more expensive.

The speed of response on the granting of the loan is 24 hours. 

The information required is very simple: Tax or Foreigners’ Identification Number (NIF/NIE), application form, financial information (3 payslips/income tax returns), proof of the account where the loan will be charged. 

The holder of the loan must have income in Spain.

The interest rate is low due to the volume processed and you have a choice of bank and fixed instalments, with no administrative fee, no notary fees and no need to contract other products.
