Context of the “Welcome to France” strategy

The Prime Minister announced in November 2018 the launch of a strategy to attract international students, called "Welcome to France". Its priority is to better welcome more students from all over the world. France has set itself the target of 500,000 international students welcomed by 2027.

The implementation of differentiated registration fees  at Chimie ParisTech - PSL for non-EU students, set by the decree of April 19, 2019 relating to the modalities of exemption from registration fees for foreign students, should make it possible to finance these improvement measures. It will also make it possible to finance scholarships and partial or total exemptions.

Modalities of exemptions at Chimie ParisTech - PSL

In accordance with the decree of 19th April 2019 concerning foreign students’ eligibility for the registration fees exemption, the Chimie ParisTech - PSL Board of Directors approved, in its deliberation of 1st July 2021, the possibility of partial or full registration fees exemption for non-EU students enrolled in engineering degree studies or a master's programme.

This partial or full exemption may eventually be granted upon student’s request (having submitted all required and necessary justifications) and after examination of the file.

The total number of cases of partial or full exemption may not exceed 10% of the total number of students enrolled in the institution, excluding grant holders (BGF and BCS).
