2018 Summer School Applications

Applications for the 2018 Pre-College Programme will open on Monday, 8 January 2018 and close in May 2018. Please note that the Pre-College Programme has rolling admissions: there are a limited number of spots available in the programme and candidates are therefore encouraged to apply as early as possible.

If you would like to receive more information about the 2018 programme, please subscribe to our newsletter.

Application Overview

Applying to the Pre-College Programme requires the successful completion of a selective application process.  Applications must be submitted online via the Sciences Po application platform. More information on the application process and required documents is available on our How to Apply page. 

Admissions Jurys

Once your application is complete, it will be submitted to the appropriate jury for consideration. The juries meet regularly and you should expect to hear the results of your application approximately three to four weeks after submission.

The Summer School receives a great number of applications. We are therefore unable to provide individual feedback regarding unsuccessful candidacies. The juries take into account our candidates’ academic backgrounds, grades, and demonstrated motivations when making their selections.

Application Processing Fee

A 30 € application fee must be paid upon submission of your application. Payment is only by credit card on the application tool.

Registration Process

Admitted students have a limited amount of time to confirm their participation in the programme once they have received their acceptance email, after which their place will be forfeited. In order to reserve their spot in the Pre-College Programme, participants are asked to pay a deposit fee and return their registration documents, including a parental authorization form, a copy of the parent’s proof of identity and an acceptance form for the programme regulations. 

Before the start of the programme, participants will also be asked to pay the remaining programme fees, and provide their arrival and departure information, as well as a completed medical form and proof of health insurance valid in France.

More information on the Pre-College Programme's regulations is available on our Policies and Procedures page.
