Paris is the most expensive city for university students



The most costly areas to study in France are still Paris and nine other university towns in the central Ile de France region, where the cost of living increased by 2.5 percent for students this year.



On the 18th of August, the Unef student union released its annual study on university towns in France, just in time for the start of the new academic year in September.


The findings of this survey, which were published on the France Info website on Wednesday, suggest that the cost of living for French students would increase by 2.5 percent in 2021.

Due to the Covid-19 issue, many students have been unable to find part-time employment and are hesitant to rely on financial assistance from their parents.


This increase is attributable to a rise in the cost of public transportation (+0.97% on average), as well as a reduction in direct public help to students in previous years.

According to Unef’s rating for 2021, Paris remains the most costly place to study in France.


A student in Paris spends an average of 1,277 euros a month, higher than students in Nanterre (1,171 euros), Créteil (1,134 euros), or Saint-Denis (1,098 euros).


The Ile de France area around Paris is home to nine of France’s 10 most expensive university cities.
