The Reims Campus

The Pre-College Programme takes place on the Reims campus of Sciences Po. The campus is housed in a former Jesuit college from the 17th century. This remarkable site has been beautifully restored to mix traditional architectural elements with state-of-the-art amenities. Located in the historical heart of the city, access to the campus is restricted to the Sciences Po community.


Students will be lodged together in a residence located close to the campus.

Exploring Reims

A medium-sized city with a rich history, Reims is an ideal location for students seeking an immersive experience in French life and culture. For over a thousand years, Reims served as the coronation site of the French monarchy and boasts an impressive architectural heritage dating back to the Gallo-Roman era. Today, the city is known as the capital of the world-famous Champagne region and is accessible in only forty minutes by train from Paris.  A walkable city, all Reims’s major landmarks can be easily reached on foot.
