Tuition fees

The administrative registration must be done before the beginning of each academic year and must be validated before the beginning of the courses: tuition fees paid and student card issued. Only the administrative registration gives the status of student, and allows you to take the exams and obtain the diploma.

Tuition fees for degree programs (2019-2020 academic year)

Tuition fees for Université Paris-Saclay degree programs are set by decree of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

Tuition fees are around (example based on fees for the 2019-2020 academic year):

  • undergraduate programme: 170€

  • Master programme: 243€
  • PhD programme: 380€


Policy set forth by Université Paris-Saclay regarding the "differentiated tuition fees" for non-EU students

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.

Masters with specific tuition fees

Please note that some master's programs have specific fees:

Some master's programs offer additional services. These programs require specific tuition fees in addition to the mandatory fees (amount specified above).
