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 2020-2021 academic year.
For students from the European Economic Area
Since 2005, Sciences Po has established, for all students whose fiscal residence is inside the European Economic Area, a sliding scale system in which tuition fees are calculated according to family income.
The sliding scale ranges from €0 tuition fees to a maximum of €10,700 per year for the undergraduate programme, and from €0 to €14,700 per year for graduate programmes. You can also use our online calculator to estimate fees directly.
As a result, the average tuition fees paid by French and EU students at Sciences Po for the 2019-20 academic year were:
- €4,600 for undergraduate studies
- €5,800 for graduate studies
And every year, nearly 33% of our students pay 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, the 2020-21 tuition fees are:
- €10,700 per year for the undergraduate programme
- €14,700 per year for graduate programmes
These costs are relatively lower than those of major world-class universities. To study in the United States, the average tuition fees are €29,000, €26,000 euros in the United Kingdom or Canada, or €21,000 in Singapore*.
Financial aid and scholarships
Financial aid and scholarships are available for both European and non-European students. Institution-specific initiatives also allow students to benefit from exemptions under certain conditions.
