How to calculate your tuition fees?
The tuition fees charged depend on the parents’ tax residence rather than on student's nationality.
Students whose parents’ tax residence is not in the EEA (European Economic Area: all EU countries + Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein) must pay fees of 6 550 € (barème unique), 10 250 € (Undergraduate) or 14 100 € (Master's) per year.
Students whose parents’ tax residence is in the EEA (i.e. all EU countries, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein) will pay fees according to a sliding scale:
- from € 0 to 10 250 €/year (undergraduate)
- from € 0 to 14 100 €/ year (Master)
- from 540 to 6 550 €/year regardless of their level, undergraduate degree or master's degree (students who registered at Sciences Po in 2008-2009 or earlier)
Depending on total declared income and the size of the household.
Depending on the size of his family, the student is entitled to a certain number of "shares", the result of which is to reduce the tuition fees. In a family, the mother and the father count for one "share" each. Children of the household, count for half a share each. Thus a married couple with three children will be entitled to 3,5 shares.
What documents must be provided to calculate your tuition fees?
Students shall provide one or more of the following documents translated into French:
- The 2015 tax assessment of both parents, translated into French.
- An attestation from employers indicating gross annual income in 2015 and the last three pay slips (with a French translation). You must specify the number of siblings living at home.
- An attestation indicating all family's earned income (i.e : Income from immovable property and tangible movable property, income received abroad, etc.).
- In the case of a divorce, common law marriage or civil partnership, specific calculation rules can be applied based on the situation of the household(s) on which the student depends. The Registrar office will inform you of the details of this calculation.
