I think yes. at least you pay for the time you occupy your teachers and 
  heated classrooms. The thing is, that in countrys like Austria people, 
like teachers, but also housekeepers, or the infrastructure at 
universities are paid by the government. so the costs for the education 
are not comparable, I think they are not measurable at all. they are 
just paid by the commuon taxpayer.

It really depends what you want do do later? artist, teach, economy. the 
  ITP has the best reputation in interaction art (eg. integrating 
microcontollers into your projects). for classical computer music paris 
might be the right choice...(?). apart from that (money usually is 
factor number one), think of applying for scholarships at least one year
