The registration fees set for the year 2020-2021 are as follows:

170 euros for a year in the bachelor’s cycle
243 euros for a year in the master’s cycle
601 euros for one year of an engineering program
380 euros for a PhD year

Students that are more than 28 years old must not interrupt their studies in order to continue to benefit from a grant.

Qualifications

Students with a title or diploma admitted as an exemption or equivalent from the French baccalaureate for registration in the first year of higher education. This condition is not required for the award of a scholarship when entering the second year of graduate studies.

Please note: The condition of detention of the quality of community worker or child of community worker is not required for the student who attests to a certain degree of integration in French society. The degree of integration is assessed in particular in view of the length of stay (one year minimum), the education in France or family ties in France. This condition is in any case not required if the student can prove five years of uninterrupted regular residence in France.
All of these provisions are applicable to citizens of the Swiss Confederation, in application of Articles 3 and 9 of Annex 1 to the Agreement on the free movement of persons, signed on June 21, 1999 between the Swiss Confederation and the Community European Union and its Member States.
