  • IELTS 7 
  • Cambridge English : C1 Advanced 

Please note that, except for the Cambridge certificates, the DELF and the DALF, language tests are valid for two years. Tests must be valid on January 1st of the year you will join Sciences Po

If you are unable to provide scores from one of the above tests when submitting your application, please attach any relevant supporting material proving a thorough command of English. 

Examples of such material may be: a degree from an institution where English is the language of instruction (at least two years of study), proof of 2 years of professional experience in an English speaking country and/or in an exclusively English speaking working environment. 

The jury will take these documents into consideration, but please note that an English test may be required if the material submitted is not deemed sufficient to prove your English proficiency. 

Please note that on the application form you must upload your proof of English proficiency under "English Language test", (even if your document is not a language test).

Some applicants may be exempted from a language test according to their situation. Please check our language test exemptions page.
