Loans for UK students studying in Paris, France

My son has been accepted to study at École Polytechnique in Paris, France. Where is the best place to find a student loan?
This page on 'funding overseas study' has all the details: www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/international.../

And more specific to studying in France is this page:
www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/international.../

In short if your son chooses to study in France he will not be eligible for funding from the UK Student Loans Company. There is good news though, typical fees in France are very inexpensive compared to the UK. Support can also be applied for at:
www.cnous.fr/

Many universities offer bursaries to overseas students, however these will be very competitive.

As for living costs he can apply for a grant to support him (again likely to be very competitive): www.caf.fr/
