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 as a result 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 €10,370 per year for the undergraduate programme, and from €0 to €14,270 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.

For students from outside the European Economic Area
For students whose fiscal residence is outside of the European Economic Area, the 2018-19 tuition fees are:
- €10,370 per year for the undergraduate programme
- €14,270 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.
