Tuition Fees for Ingénieur Polytechnicien international students
All full-time Ingénieur Polytechnicien international students must pay tuition fees for the entire duration of their studies. Students who repeat a full year of study will also be required to pay the applicable full-time tuition fees for the repeated year.
Fees are subject to revision for each year group, and will be charged to international students depending on their year of admission and nationality. Tuition fees for international students admitted as X2017, X2018 and X2019 are fixed according to the decree published on November 17, 2017 in the JORF (Official Journal of the French Republic).
For students admitted as X2020 and following year, the information given below are intended to give you estimate fees only.
For your 4th year, you can choose to study for a 1- or 2-year Master’s degree in France or abroad. Tuition fees must then be paid directly to the school or university where you will be studying.
École Polytechnique offers tuition fees waivers based on the student’s financial needs and covers partially these fees. Tuition fees waivers are given to students on demand only and after their admission into the Ingénieur polytechnicien Program. Please note that, from students admitted in the class of X2019 on, even the highest tuition fee waiver requires a €12.500 total fee to be paid during the first two years of the Program.
Students are entitled to an immediate tuition fee waiver if they have been accepted to École Polytechnique for a double degree program, or if they come from one of École Polytechnique’s partner universities with which the School has signed a specific cooperation agreement in which tuition fee waivers are mentioned.
There are a number of scholarship schemes available from the French government and from foreign governments, which totally or partially cover international students’ tuition fees and living costs. Students are asked to consult their awarding institution directly for more information.
