Summer School

Over summer in the heart of Paris, the Summer School gives students from around the globe the chance to discover Sciences Po, one of the world's leading universities in the social sciences.

Social sciences and French language

At the Summer School, students experience both the Sciences Po way of teaching and its exceptional multiculturalism. It is also an opportunity to discover the Sciences Po environment and French culture, in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris.

Students can choose between two courses – either a course in the social sciences or an intensive French language course designed around social science topics.

Discover Sciences Po

The courses alternate between lectures, small group work, debates and seminars taught by professors and practitioners. The Summer School also organises cultural activities such as walking tours of the city, visits to sites of interest and museums, etc.

This programme is open to students or prospective students who would like to pursue an international career, to study at Sciences Po, or simply to satisfy their intellectual curiosity. People in employment who have a university degree or equivalent can also participate.
