- The registration fee, required to enrol in the IMDEA program: €243

What is the CVEC?


The CVEC is mandatory and aims to strengthen the social, health, cultural and sports support of students, as well as to reinforce prevention and health education actions carried out for them.

All students registered or in the process of being enrolled for the year 2019/2020, must pay this amount to the CROUS via the following website:


CVEC website and process are only accessible in French for now. Should you need a walkthrough, consult the CVEC step-by-step guide provided by Campus France.


IMPORTANT: You MUST obtain your proof of CVEC payment or notice of exemption before attempting to register in M1 or M2.

You can do this online before leaving for France. You will have to show proof of payment or a notice of exemption in order to register!



- If you have already enrolled in a French public university in 2018-2019, your tuition payment will not change until you complete your degree program. The amount will be the same as for European students (see above).


- If you arrive in France at the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year (i.e. September 2019) in Master 1 or Master 2, and enrol for the 1st time in a French Public university, your tuition might be €3770 / academic year.
