With a busy academic schedule and a wealth of extra-curricular activities to balance alongside, life at Sciences Po can feel intense at times. With this in mind, the university is committed to prioritising questions of mental health and promoting the welfare of its students. It sees the provision of emotional and mental support as a responsibility of equal importance to teaching in order to help students reach their full academic and personal potential at Sciences Po.

The Sciences Po Health Centre provides a number of different services in support of student well-being.

Psychological Support

To help students manage their psychological health, Sciences Po offers individual meetings with mental health professionals appointed to listen and to provide personalised support and counselling. French, English, and German speaking psychologists are available by appointment. Find out more.

Anyone registered with the French social security system can also access France’s specialised BAPU psychological support centres for students (Bureaux d’aide psychologique universitaires), which are free of charge with your student card.

On the Reims campus, two general doctors and two psychologists are on site all week.

Wellness Workshops and Stress Management

Sciences Po offers an innovative range of personal development tools focused on stress management, mindfulness, meditation, and creativity. These include workshops in self-massage, sophrology, and various exercises designed to relieve physical and mental strain.

Art and Creativity Workshops

The various creative workshops available at Sciences Po provide students with a counterbalance to their studies and an opportunity to express themselves outside of academic assignments. An art therapist is also available to help students manage stress through creative activities.

Yoga in the Classroom

Bringing the methods of the Health Centre into her classroom at Sciences Po, lecturer Sophie Flak incorporates yoga breaks into her Master’s course on sustainable development and communications. She explains that yoga can aid concentration and recall as well as easing stress and anxiety, making it as useful academically as personally.

Talk to your Advisor

As well as the services offered by the Health Centre, students are always encouraged to speak to their Academic Advisor regarding any problem they encounter during the course of their time at Sciences Po, whether academic or personal.

On 10 October in Paris, a symposium titled “Bridging Ideas” marked the 15th Anniversary of the Alliance Programme, an innovative partnership between Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Columbia University, École Polytechnique and Sciences Po.

This academic event gathered over 150 participants from the four universities, who collaborate to develop scientific partnerships and exchange through joint projects, visiting professorships, doctoral mobility grants, and student-driven initiatives.

“What the Alliance Program shows is that innovation in higher education is often made possible thanks to the mutual respect and trust between the men and women who work daily within our institutions to advance initiatives for generations to come”, said Frédéric Mion, President of Sciences Po.

Frédéric Mion stressed the strategic importance of the Alliance program in fostering the relationship and collaboration between France and the United States: “The Alliance Program has significantly contributed to ensuring that the dialogue between France and the United States has remained open and active, and has as such not only remarkably fulfilled its role as a tool for transatlantic academic and scientific cooperation, but has also succeeded in reinforcing the contribution of universities such as ours to global civic debate.”
