How is much tuition at Sciences Po?



At Sciences Po, we believe that financial barriers should never get in the way of education. Tuition fees are relatively lower than other world-class universities because of our proactive social policy to be an open and inclusive university.


For students from within the European Economic Area

Since 2005, Sciences Po has established, for all students whose fiscal residence is within the European Economic Area, a sliding scale system in which tuition fees are based according to family income. Since 2021, tuition fees have been calculated individually based on each student family's financial resources.


For the 2022-23 academic year, tuition fees for students from within the European Economic Area range from 0 to 13,190 euros per year at the undergraduate level, and from 0 to 18,260 euros per year at the graduate level.

In 2020-21, the average tuition fees for French and European students at Sciences Po amounted to:

  • 5,350 euros at the undergraduate level

  • 6,750 euros at the graduate level

35% of our students paid no tuition fees at all.

For students from outside the European Economic Area

For students whose fiscal residence is outside of the European Economic Area in the 2022-23 academic year, tuition fees amount to:

  • 13,190 euros at the undergraduate level

  • 18,260 euros at the graduate level

These fees are greatly inferior to those charged at other major world universities: the cost of one year of tuition at American universities averages at €29,000 per year, €26,000 in the United Kingdom or Canada, and €21,000 at universities in Singapore*.


Financial aid and scholarships

Financial aid and scholarships are available for both European and non-European students. In 2021-22, about €11 million of Sciences Po's funds went towards assisting our students via scholarships and financial aid.
