Calculate tuition fees

Please note

The following information only concerns students admitted in Bachelor or Master programmes (excluding specific programmes under agreements and One -Year Master programmes).

The tuition fees indicated below relate to the year 2020/2021 only.

Tuition fees for 2021/2022 will be communicated in January 2021 at the latest.

How to calculate?

The tuition fees charged depend on the parents’ tax residence rather than on student's nationality.

Students whose parents’ tax residence is not in the European Economic Area (all EU countries + Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein) must pay fees of €10,700 (Undergraduate) or €14,700 (Master) per year.

Students whose parents’ tax residence is in theEuropean Economic Area (all EU countries + Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein) will pay fees according to a sliding scale:

  • from €0 to €10,700/year (undergraduate)
  • from €0 to €14,700/year (Master)

The calculation of tuition fees will be established according to the total of income earned by the student’s tax household, regardless of the type or the origin of the income (in the home country or abroad) and in particular all allowances, benefits and income received during N-2 calendar year before any deduction or charge divided by the number of units of the student’s household.

The composition of the household is established under the conditions mentioned in the circular n°2019-096 dated June 18, 2019 of the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, except for recognition of financial independence.

The number of units is calculated as follows: one unit for each person of the household and half a unit for each person dependant on the household regardless of the age.

The total income divided by the number of units provides a result, which, placed on the sliding scale, corresponds to with an amount of tuition fees.
