Tuition fees for students from outside the EU?

PSL and its Schools are strongly committed to providing equal opportunities for all students, regardless of national origin.
The exemption cap of 10% of enrolled students is sufficient, for the 2019-2020 school year, to provide a general waiver. Moreover, the logistics of implementing the measure would be difficult to reconcile with the recruitment calendar already underway for next fall.
Consequently, for the 2019-2020 school year, PSL wishes to partially waive the fees of non-EU international students in both Bachelor's and Master’s programs affected by the measure and apply the same tuition rates to them that apply to all PSL students.
For the record: tuition fees are set by ministerial decree (€243 in 2018/19). Please note that you will also need to provide proof of payment for the CVEC (Student Life and Campus Fee) of €90.
