Tuition and scholarships


University studies in France are relatively inexpensive compared to most european and north-american countries, as higher education is highly subsidized by the french government.

The registration fee is revised annually by the french ministry of education. For the academic year 2023-2024, the tuition fee is the following:

  • EU students: 243 €
  • Non-EU students: 3770 € but provided that the applicants explicitely ask for the exemption, this higher fee will not be applied by UGA (non-EU students will pay the same tuition as EU students)
In addition to the registration fee, students have to pay 100 € of contribution to the cost of student life (CVEC, compulsory).
Students are also required to subscribe to the national health insurance program (free of charge).
Students more than 28 and who have interrupted their studies for more than 2 years, should contact the service of continuing education of adult students which will determine the tuition that they have to pay.


The Graduate School of UGA offers Master's scholarships on a competitive basis to students who have obtained their high-school degree outside France and are enrolled in one of the thematic program of the Graduate School: Other scholarships are available depending on your situation:
