Cultural activities on the Paris campus

You have the opportunity to enrol in one or more of the optional cultural activities organised in association with the Arts Club ("Bureau des Arts").

Each semester, some twenty activities in a variety of fields including theatre, creative writing, film and music, as well as photography and other visual arts, are available to you as forms of expression, to reveal hidden talents or simply to spark your curiosity. These classes are held in French and/or English depending on the subject and the teacher. For further information about these activities, please check out the online catalogue or contact the Arts Club.

COURSE REGISTRATION

As these classes are organised along with Sciences Po's student Arts Club, the "Bureau des Arts", there is an annual membership fee to pay, in addition to the cost of the activities indicated in the catalogue. The membership fee of 10€ is payable once each academic year. If you are already a member of the Arts Club, only the cost of the chosen course is payable.

Each semester, registration for arts classes takes place directly with the Student life department and the Arts Club, at the place and times indicated in the Newsletter sent to your Science Po e-mail address at the beginning of the semester.

HOW TO PAY FOR YOUR CLASSES

Payment must be made exclusively in person, during the designated registration dates, by cheque or bank card.
For practical purposes, we recommend that you prefer payment by bank card.

COURSE REGULATIONS

Enrolment in the Arts Club's ("Bureau des Arts") cultural activities will give you a maximum of 2 ECTS credits, regardless of the number of courses you choose to do. At the end of the semester, these courses are marked as pass or fail solely on the basis of attendance: in other words, to validate your course and obtain your 2 credits, you are required to attend a minimum of 10 out of the 12 sessions. Regulations apply as set out in article 5 of the Academic Rules & Regulations.

Any absence due to exams or IELTS language tests can be excused, upon presentation of a letter of excuse from your academic office, addressed to the Sports & Arts coordinator at the Student life department.
