How to manage your budget well

France offers a unique cultural wealth, but it is important to plan your budget, taking into account daily expenses, accommodation and leisure. With good financial management, your experience will be memorable on an academic level, but also on a personal level.


Tuition fees for private educational institutions in France are often more affordable than in many other countries. The diversity of programs offered provides students with a variety of options.

The cost of our programs is approximately: 

  • Bachelor cycle from €8,000 to €9,000 per year 
  • Cycle BAC+4/5, MBA, MSc from €9,000 to €14,000 per year 

(Students outside Europe – New entrant) 


The cost of accommodation in France for students can vary depending on the city and location. In larger cities like Paris, rents tend to be higher, while more remote areas may offer more affordable options. Residence halls and shared accommodation are often popular choices for reducing costs. Students are advised to plan their budget carefully and explore different options to find the right balance.

You will need to count around €800 per month for the Paris region and around €500 per month for other regions.

The price of leisure and cultural activities varies greatly. There is something for all tastes and for all budgets. You will often have access to reductions  and special ratesupon presentation of your student card or simply if you are under 25 years old.
