UVSQ tuition fees
As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at UVSQ is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. French programs at UVSQ start from 1,000 USD per year. Before admission, you should pass a language exam at least at a B2 level. English programs are about twice as expensive. For up-to-date information on scholarships and the cost of education for each program, check the official website of the educational institution.
In addition to the cost of education, it is necessary to pay attention to additional costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses.
- Academic calendar
The campus of the educational institution is located in Versailles. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. Foreigners who come to UVSQ through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
