  • For the first year:
    • Non-EU Students: 4 500€ per semester
    • EU Students: 3 000€ per semester 
  • For the second year:
    • Non-EU Students: 4 500€ per semester
    • EU Students: 3 000€ per semester 

The programme fee per semester covers registration and 30 ECTS credits of courses (60 ECTS are required per academic year under the Bologna Process) as well as the services and facilities offered by the programme.

Extra ECTS credits, i.e., beyond the required 60 ECTS credits per academic year, shall incur an additional fee of €150 per ECTS credit for European Union students and €200 per ECTS credit for non-European Union students.


 Please Note:

  • Students can apply for various scholarships offered by the different partners, countries of the partners, and also the Consortium Scholarship. See Financial Support. 
  • There is no application fee.
  • The first installment of the fees (€1,000) is due within 1 week (7 days) of the student accepting an offer from the programme. The remaining installments of fees (€3,500 for EU students, €8,000 for non-EU students) can be split into two payments unless you attend to have the fees paid by a scholarship. All payments should be ended by June 30th. In that case, a statement confirming the scholarship allocation has to be sent to the Quantitative Economics Master (QEM) Applications Office.
  • The programme fees are not refundable, unless an exceptional situation.
  • The programme fees cover the university fees of the partners involved in the student mobility track (that will be paid directly by the Coordination Office).
  • This is to be confirmed by September 2023, but be aware that on top of the payment of tuition fees, each student to be registered in the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and, according to the national law, needs to pay a tax of 91€ corresponding to the contribution to student life.
  • The fees do not cover copies, books, meals, accommodation, or general living expenses. However, students will have access to the library and a computer laboratory. University canteens are a relatively inexpensive meal option, and some student housings are reserved for Quantitative Economics Master students at a special rate.
