Education in private schools (les ecoles de commerce), will be more expensive - from 3 000 € to 10 000 € per year. As tuition France takes the EU 11th place after Norway, Finland, Austria, Denmark and Sweden, where higher education is free at all, and the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Poland and Belgium, where the cost of an annual training less than 100 €.
