Did you know?

French universities’ tuition fees are low, from 380 to 3,770 euros per year depending on the level of study. This is because the State covers most of the costs of education offered by public establishments.
The real cost of studies is the same as elsewhere. The difference is that in France, whether you are French or a foreigner, the State will bear most of it.

The average annual investment is 14,000 euros per student, which is covered by the French State.
