Secondary school students gain valuable insight from Sciences Po undergrads

“What can I learn at Sciences Po?”, “Are all the courses in English?”, “Why choose Sciences Po rather than another university?”, “What is the best way to prepare for the interview?”, “Is accommodation available on campus?”, “What are the best clubs and societies at Sciences Po”?, “If Sciences Po were a catchphrase, what would it be?”... These are some of the questions that secondary school students asked current undergraduates and Sciences Po representatives during the live Q&A on 25 January.

Watch the replay of the Q&A - you can select the particular questions you are interested in - and hear directly from Lukas Drammeh, undergraduate student on the Reims campus, Amy Greene, Assistant Dean for undergraduate international affairs, Lavanya Pai, undergraduate student on the Le Havre campus, and Olivier Chopin, Academic Director on the Reims campus.
