Housing and Support
Standard tuition fees for 2018/19 are set to €15,000 per academic year. However, the tuitions fees you are liable for may depend on your status or the existence of a partnership with your home institution. Moreover, a few grants covering tuition fees will be provided thanks to the industrial partners supporting this graduate degree. Please indicate in your application if you would be interested by such a grant. The excellence of your records will be one of the criteria.
Please note that registration with a health insurance scheme is compulsory in France when you enroll at a Higher Education Institution.
If you come from any of the 28 EU countries, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway or Switzerland and are already registered with a national health insurance provider, you must apply for the European health insurance card. This card is free and will give you access to state-provided healthcare during your stay in France under the same conditions and at the same cost as nationals.
Students from Quebec are exempt from joining the French Student Social Security upon presentation of Form #SE401Q106.
