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 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 €10,540 per year for the undergraduate programme, and from €0 to €14,500 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 2017-18 academic year were:

  • €4,560 for undergraduate studies
  • €5,990 for graduate studies 

And every year, nearly 33% of our students pay no tuition fees at all.

Examples of tuition fees

For students from outside the European Economic Area

For students whose fiscal residence is outside of the European Economic Area, the 2019-20 tuition fees are:

  • €10,540 per year for the undergraduate programme
  • €14,500 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*.

“Propaganda is the foundation of liberal democracy”

“Propaganda is the foundation of liberal democracy”

Persuasion of the masses wasn’t born with the Internet, but digital content and social media mark a revolution in the history of propaganda. Far from having disappeared with the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century, today it is more present, more efficient, and more of a danger than ever before for democracy. We interviewed David Colon, historian and instructor at Sciences Po, about his book, Propaganda. The Manipulation of the Masses in the Contemporary World (Propagande. La manipulation de masse dans le monde contemporain. Available in French only.)
