Study in Europe

As a student at Sciences Po, you can spend time abroad at three different moments:

  • Students are required to spend their third year of the Bachelor’s programme abroad, either studying at a partner university, on an internship or undertaking a personal project.
  • One semester of the Master’s programme is spent outside Sciences Po, and studying abroad is one of the possibilities.
  • During your doctorate, you may choose to participate in a PhD exchange programme.
