University studies in France are relatively inexpensive compared to most European and North American countries, as Education is highly subsidized by the French governement;
As with any French University program, registration in the Master of Science in Informatics at Grenoble requires payment of a relatively modest registration fee which is revised annually by the French Minister of Education. Thanks to generous support from the French Education Ministry, annual registration fees will be approximately 250 Euros. In addition to this registration fee, students are also required to subscribe to the national health insurance program, requiring a payment of 207 Euros (in 2012-2013 - updated each year).
The Université Joseph Fourier has recently announced that applicants over the age of 28 years old, who have not been enrolled in a University program for several years *will* be considered as "continuing education" students and asked to pay a higher tuition. The exact terms under which this may be applied to international masters students are currently under discussion. For now, we encourage such students to apply. However, students over 28 years old who are currently working in industry, will likely be required to pay a higher tuition.
The University will decide on a case by case basis, and students who are admitted as continuing education students will be informed at the time of the admission.
