Exemption resolution for new non-EU UPSaclay students in 2020-2021

In keeping with the resolution voted by its executive board, dated April 17, 2019, Université Paris-Saclay is intent on developing a proactive policy to attract national, EU and non-EU students. As such, for the 2020-2021 academic year, successful candidates affected by the decree and order relating to tuition fees in higher education institutions falling within the jurisdiction of the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, will need to pay the same tuition fees as that of national students without having to make any explicit appeal to this end. Partial exemption will be enforced throughout the duration of their studies at Université Paris-Saclay, except in the case of repetition, where a commission will adjudicate on maintaining such exemption.
