Visa and Admission Fees

Policy set forth by Université Paris-Saclay and its founding members regarding the announced implementation of “differentiated tuition fees” for non-EU students

Université Paris-Saclay and its founding members (Université Paris-Sud, Université de Versailles St Quentin-en-Yvelines, Université d’Evry Val d’Essonne, AgroParisTech, CentraleSupélec, Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay, Institut d’Optique Graduate School) wish to carry out a proactive policy with the aim to bolster the attractiveness of the site for national, EU and non-EU students.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, in accordance with the regulatory framework, Université Paris-Saclay and its members will implement a broad exemption policy for students and PhD students, by bringing tuition fees for non-EU students and PhD students into line with those of EU students and PhD students.


Admission Fees

In 2018, admission fees were fixed at €170 for an undergraduate degree, €243 for a Master's degree, and €380 for a PhD degree. In France students need to pay healthcare taxes (€211/ year) and for sports and culture activities (€90), and library fees (€34).

The cost of living in the Paris area is around €1,000 per month.





If you live outside the European Union, you will need a visa or "titre de séjour" to come to France.

  • You need to contact the French embassy or the Consulat de France in your own country to obtain your visa.
  • To obtain your visa you will have to prove that Paris-Sud University has agreed to admit you.
  • Do not apply for a tourist visa; you will need a student visa or internship "titre de séjour" to live in France at the University.

If you want to remain in France to continue your studies, don't forget to change your visa or your "titre de séjour" at least 2 months before the deadline.
