How much is tuition at Sciences Po?
At Sciences Po, we believe that financial barriers should never get in the way of education. Tuition fees are relatively lower than other world-class universities because of our proactive social policy to be an open and inclusive university.
For students from within the European Economic Area
Since 2005, Sciences Po has established, for all students whose fiscal residence is within the European Economic Area, a sliding scale system in which tuition fees are based according to family income. Since 2021, tuition fees have been calculated individually based on each student family's financial resources.
For the 2023-24 academic year, tuition fees for students from within the European Economic Area range from 0 to 14,210 euros per year at the undergraduate level, and from 0 to 19,670 euros per year at the graduate level.
In 2020-21, the average tuition fees for French and European students at Sciences Po amounted to:
- 5,200 euros at the undergraduate level
- 6,330 euros at the graduate level
33% of our students paid no tuition fees at all.

For students from outside the European Economic Area
For students whose fiscal residence is outside of the European Economic Area in the 2023-24 academic year, tuition fees amount to:
- 14,210 euros at the undergraduate level
- 19,670 euros at the graduate level
Financial aid and scholarships
Financial aid and scholarships are available for both European and non-European students. In 2021-22, about €11 million of Sciences Po's funds went towards assisting our students via scholarships and financial aid.
Those financial aids are strongly increasing in 2023. Scholarships based on social criteria will amount to 1.3 millions of euros (+15.6%). There are three factors leading to this raise: a rise of the amount dedicated to the CROUS scholarships, a growth of 7% of the Boutmy scholarships for non-European students and a doubling of social aids.
