Tuition and financial aid
Tuition is paid at the home institution and students incur the following expenses : transportation, room and board, welfare and insurance and leisure activities.
At UTC, tuition for international students is totally free thanks to French government subsidies, but each year students are required to pay the admission registration fees.
Exchange programs :
- No registration fees
- Students' Social security : free
As soon as the international student arrives in France, he has to create his own personal account and register online to the French Social Security here.
› Students from the European Union or Québec are not required to pay the social security in France, since their home countries have a social security agreement with France. Students over 28 years of age should register at CPAM and their social security is totally free.
Grants for international students
There are 2 types of grants for international students : 1° for accommodation and 2° from student's home country.
- an accommodation grant (APL): provided by the French government according to student's financial situation. It is managed by CAF (Caisse d'Allocations Familiales). More info
- Grants from the student's country of origin: for more information, please contact the International Relations Office of your home university or your Embassy or Consular representatives in France.
Contribution Vie Étudiante et Campus
Since 2018, all the French and international students registered in a first training course have to pay the CVEC (Contribution Vie Étudiante et Campus). The CVEC costs 90 euros. This contribution only concerns students who will get a French diploma.
Higher Education and accommodation grants
These grants are based on social criteria and are applicable to:
- french students
- foreign students
- political refugees who have a valid political refugee card or whose parents have been living in France for more than 2 years
The grant and/or accommodation scholarship are based on a scale uptaded annually according to financial resources and family responsibilities (information at the CROUS in Amiens or at the reception of the University Residence).
Whether it be a first application or a renewal, requests have to be made via internet before the end of April for the following academic year (check this date at the Registrar's Office). Forms for pre-registration are available at the Registrar's office. Students will be notified notice directly by the CROUS.
Any student of French nationality or political refugees may apply for this type of loan. A commission convenes annually, early December.
This type of loan cannot be awarded concurrently with a Higher Education grant, and being limited in number, only a few students will be allowed to benefit.
