Due to the current peculiar circumstances surrounding the Covid-19, the University Toulouse 1 Capitole has decided to not apply the reform on differentiated registration fees to non-EU students for the 2020-2021 academic year. Therefore, all non-EU students will be required to pay the same registration fees as EU students.

Unless they benefit from a specific individual waiver (see below), students benefiting from this exceptional measure will have to pay the differential fees in 2021-2022.
- If you are enrolled in the 1st or 2nd year of a Bachelor's degree in UT1 in 2020-21: you will have to pay the differential fees for the 2nd or 3rd year of the Bachelor's degree.
- If you are enrolled in the 1st year of a Master's degree in UT1 in 2020-21: you will have to pay the differential fees for the 2nd year of the Master's degree.
- If you are enrolled in the 3rd year of a Bachelor's degree in UT1 in 2020-21: you will be exempted  from the differential fees for the whole Bachelor's cycle.
- If you are enrolled in the 2nd year of a Master's degree in UT1 in 2020-21: you will be exempted from the differential fees for the whole Master's cycle.

The implementation of the reform on differentiated fees and the TSE partial registration fee waiver policy for non-EU students is postponed to the next academic year 2021-2022. More information on the financial aids available by clicking HERE.
