Updated on 16/12/2020 - 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.
Please note: the following tuition rates are for the 2021-2022 academic year and apply only to students in the first year of their Bachelor's or Master's degrees.
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. Starting in 2021, tuition fees are calculated individually based on each student family's financial resources.
Tuition fees for students from within the European Economic Area will range from 0 to 13,000 euros per year at the undergraduate level, and from 0 to 18,000 euros per year at the graduate level.
As a result, the average tuition fees for French and European students at Sciences Po amount to:
- 5,350 euros at the undergraduate level
- 6,750 euros at the graduate level
This adjustment will also increase the number of tuition fee waivers, from which 1 in 3 students at Sciences Po already benefit.
You can also use our online calculator to estimate fees directly.
For students from outside the European Economic Area
For students whose fiscal residence is outside of the European Economic Area, the 2021-22 tuition fees amount to:
- 13,000 euros at the undergraduate level
- 18,000 euros at the graduate level
These fees are greatly inferior to those charged at other major world universities: the cost of one year of tuition at American universities averages at €29,000 per year, €26,000 in the United Kingdom or Canada, and €21,000 at universities in Singapore*.
Financial aid and scholarships
Financial aid and scholarships are available for both European and non-European students. Every year, Sciences Po devotes more than 11 million euros to tuition fee waivers, scholarships and financial aid.
