ARTFX fees
Start of 2023
academic year


Registration for the ARTFX entrance exams is free.

No surprise fees

Students are provided with all the necessary computer equipment on the ARTFX campuses. They are not required to invest in their own computer. Tuition fees are subject to change. In this case, students already enrolled in a 5-year course are not subject to this fee change during the course of their studies. The only exception to this rule is that students completing a preparatory year will be required to pay the tuition fees indicated in the school’s sales documentation for the year in which they enter the first year, if they are accepted into the higher curriculum at the end of their preparatory year.

1st year

The first year is the same for all ARTFX Masters courses. It gives students time to choose what route to take, while acquiring work experience in the different occupations studied at ARTFX. The students bring their drawing skills up to standard, sharpen their sense of image and build on their English language skills.

Years 2 to 5

Students can choose one of the 5 ARTFX courses at the end of the first year. Year 2 is designed to prepare students for specialisation (year 3), by providing them with the skills base required for their future career and by giving them a complete picture of the film/game production chain. In year 4, students grow in professional competence and complete their show reel, before tackling an end-of-studies project as a team or as a specialist (year 5).
Parallel admissions possible at baccalauréat (secondary school leaving qualification) +1 (1st year), +2 (2nd year) or +3 (3rd year).

The price
of independence

ARTFX is an independent private higher education institution. The State recognises our courses by awarding the professional qualification of “digital producer” registered in the Répertoire national des certifications professionnelles (national directory of professional certifications) (last renewal date: 14 September 2020).

Tuition fees are the school’s main resource to pay its teachers and finance its infrastructure and the equipment made available to students, from filming material to digital tools associated with the flipped classroom.

ARTFX is one of the few schools that doesn’t belong to a private higher education group. Its financial independence means it can invest most of its tuition fees in educational innovation and the quality of its teaching.

Financing your studies

The school has partnership agreements with several banking institutions, which facilitate access to student loans at reduced rates in preferential conditions. The employment rate of ARTFX students within 6 months to 1 year after graduation is 95%.
