The academic year has just got underway on the seven campuses of the Sciences Po Undergraduate College. Our undergraduate students come from many different backgrounds and they each have their own story to tell about their journey to Sciences Po. Why did they choose this university? What are their goals? Take a tour of the campuses and meet the students.

Undergraduate students spend two years on a multicultural Sciences Po campus in France, and one year abroad, either doing an internship or studying at one of our 470 partner universities around the world.
Over these three years, they will study social sciences from a cross-disciplinary perspective, improve their language proficiency, develop critical thinking skills, discover new intellectual horizons and form life-changing friendships.
