What you need to know

Created 15 years ago, the international admissions procedure purpose is designed to attract students with a truly international profile.

The procedure allows candidates to present themselves, explain their motivation and highlight their knowledge of foreign languages, extra-curricular activities as well as their future and personal career goals. The selection of candidates is thus based on not only academic excellence but also on the above named factors resulting in a diverse student body composed of different backgrounds and experiences. After a holistic evaluation of the application files, a selection of candidates is then invited to an interview, organized in 70 cities across the world.

The regional undergraduate campuses have been designed with the needs of international students in mind. They offer students an environment in which they can thrive academically whilst preparing them for graduate studies in Paris. The individual attention offered at the regional campuses takes into account the challenges students may encounter: living away from home, coping with demanding academic obligations, adapting to life in France and tackling linguistic difficulties.The educational support provided by the faculty and staff, small classroom organization and provincial life, low cost of living as compared to Paris and the sense of community amongst students makes life in the regional campuses a unique experience.

Please read carefully the eligibility criteria for the undegraduate international admissions. 

After having successfully completed the 3-year undergraduate programme, graduates obtain the "Diplôme du Collège Universitaire de Sciences Po," regardless of which campus they attended.

The international admission procedure only offers the possibility of being accepted to one of the regional campuses. If you wish to study in the campus in Paris, you must apply through the Entrance Examination procedure (in French).

Campus France : If you come from a country using the "Studying in France" procedure, please note that you cannot apply for Sciences Po through that procedure. In order to apply for Sciences Po you need to follow the steps and the calendar described on this website.
