Tuition fees in French public higher education institutions are defined by ministerial order for national degrees. They can represent a significant part of the student's overall budget. They are defined according to your profile. There are ways to reduce the cost.

Are you a French or European Union student with a scholarship?

In some cases, you may be exempt from:

  • tuition fees and library fees collected by the University
  • the Contribution Vie Étudiante et Campus (CVEC) collected by the CROUS.

As soon as you have obtained the CVEC certificate, you can register for free and follow the course in which you have been accepted.

Tuition Fees for International Students

All other students (those not mentioned in the above area) must pay differentiated tuition fees.

CVEC: Due by all students

Please notice that, with very few exceptions, the Student and Campus Life Contribution ("Contribution Vie Etudiante et de Campus" - CVEC)  applies to all French and foreign students enrolling for a degree program in a public or private institution of higher education in France.
