Automatic financial support from French government
Engineering courses all over the world are costly as they require technical equipment, laboratories and highly trained staff. However, the French government subzidizes part of the tuition fees for French and foreign students who enrol on a national degree course such as those offered through Network "n+i".
The French government directly finances higher education and thereby enables French and foreign students to significantly reduce the cost of their studies. This automatic allowance covers tuition fees and a portion of the cost of housing (APL aid) and student restaurants.
Thanks to France's policy in terms of hosting foreign students, the reduction in the real cost of studies, which can be likened to an “automatic” grant from France, is at least € 20,000 for a 2-year training programme!
The registration costs offered by institutions of Network "n+i" take account of funds received from the French state.
