The following are not included in tuition fees and must be arranged directly by each student: transportation to and from Paris, school supplies (excluding books), food, and housing (if not obtained through the Summer School).

2018 Optional Academic Fees

Elective classes

  • Per session: 500 €

Students have the possibility to take one optional elective class per session in addition to their core social science or French language class.  See a full list of elective classes.


The Summer School is not able to offer any scholarships. We encourage prospective students to check with their home universities and local embassies to see if they may secure additional funding.

Refund Policy

All tuition and other programme fees are non-refundable.  In the event of an illness or other medical incident that prevents the student from attending the Summer School, as officially certified by a doctor, the Summer School may exceptionally consider the possibility of a credit for the following summer.
