As a wholly post-graduate school the Paris School of Architecture accepts applications from candidates who have completed previous undergraduate study elsewhere.

Assessment and admission of candidates' suitability for the course is made entirely by submission of a portfolio and an interview.

Selection is rigorous and candidates are encouraged to focus their attention on their portfolio submission and interview technique.

Submission Requirements

Admission to the school is based on the submission of a digital portfolio followed by an interview.  The school welcomes applications from all those who are interested in studying architecture and associated disciplines, but as the school teaches in English only, a high level of English is required before starting the course. This will also be assessed at interview.

Candidates should also demonstrate an awareness and ability to undertake advanced study of their proposed subject.

Fees and Funding

Fees for the academic year 2024/25 are 10,709 €

A 3,500 € deposit is paid during the enrolment process to confirm your place, this is deducted from the remaining tuition fee balance, which is then due in the July preceding your arrival at the school.

Architecture students will typically incur higher course-related costs due to the materials required for model-making, drawing, and presentations.

The Paris School of Architecture Studio Research Project Award provides the opportunity for one graduate student to teach within the school's research studio, as a paid teaching assistant, for the duration of the academic year following their graduation.  This will be awarded by the academic council at the end of year show in June.

Living in Paris

It is the responsibility of the student to organise their housing and maintenance while in Paris. Paris is a global city and renting can be expensive.  The French State currently provides some housing assistance to students and interns, further information can be found at

Non-EEA citizens will require a visa to enter France.  It is the student's responsibility to obtain the correct paperwork for their stay.  The Paris School of Architecture will provide a letter confirming acceptance to a course if required.

An orientation week at the beginning of term will introduce students to the school and the city with a number of visits, tours, and events.
