For EU & International Students

All full-time Ingénieur Polytechnicien international students are required to 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.

Tuition fees for non-French students entering the Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program in 2019:

EU students: €19,000 for 3 years
Year 1: €3,500
Year 2: €7,750

Year 3: €7,750

Non-EU students: €38,000 for 3 years
Year 1: €7,000
Year 2: €15,500

Year 3: €15,500

For Year 4, students can choose to study for a 1- or 2-year Master’s degree in France or abroad, in which case, if there are tuition fees, they are to be paid directly to the host institution.

For French Nationals

French students at École Polytechnique serve under military status and receive a remuneration for the duration of their studies. There are no study costs for French students, on the condition that they work for the civil service for at least 10 years within the 20 years following their graduation. Otherwise, they must repay the tuition fees:

As of today, the total amount to be repaid is set at:

  • €21,000 for students who have chosen to join a government body for Year 4
  • €31,000 for students who have not chosen to join a government body for Year 4

This amount is reduced according to the amount of time spent in the civil service.
