Yes for the degree course, but not for the Introduction to Space course. Grant requests are made individually by minitel or Internet (there is no longer a ’paper’ application form) before April, therefore before the entrance examination.
7,250 € per year for the degree course (+ 200 € registration fee for the first year ) and 7,150 € for the 5th year.
4,950 € per year for the Introduction to Space course (+ 300 € registration fee) or 2,000€ for students attending only one study theme.
Payment can be spread out.
As the school does not receive state funding it is self-financed, from tuition fees and the apprenticeship tax. The scool private donation funds may enabled a reduced payment of tuition fees for certain students experiencing financial difficulties . A social commission seats in June, immediately after the competitive entrance examination, and makes all decisions concerning those reductions.
This varies greatly from student to student. Basic equipment has to be acquired during the first year, and kept throughout the degree course. Some students evaluate expenses at around 100 € per month (materials, prints, etc.). The students’ office sometimes buys in bulk to obtain discounts.
