Tuition Fees for International Students in France
Education is government subsidized in France, meaning that tuition fees are comparatively low. On average, a Licence degree from a public university costs around 200 EUR per year for both EU and non-EU students. However, cost fluctuates depending on chosen program. For example, studying medicine costs around 450 EUR per year, and engineering around 620 EUR. Masters and PhD programs in France are also more expensive, the former averaging 260 and the latter 396 EUR per year. The cost of studying in a private institution is higher – selective schools and Grandes Écoles can charge anywhere between 250 and 20,000 EUR per year.
As an international student, you may be eligible for a scholarship offered by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Programme. Some universities offer scholarships worth up to 10,000 EUR to international students who display exceptional academic merit (mainly from Masters and PhD courses).
