How can I prepare for this evaluation?

Sciences Po seeks to select excellent students, whatever their academic path prior to applying. The admissions process at Sciences Po values diversity among applicants and their backgrounds. That means that applications are evaluated in their entirety and excellence in a candidate’s specialities and chosen subjects is one of the factors taken into consideration. You should therefore choose your subjects on the basis of your own skills, interests and curiosity about the specialities on offer.

We would also advise you to familiarise yourselves with our programmes and curriculums, both at the Undergraduate College (Bachelor’s level) and at Master’s level. Whatever subjects and specialities you choose, it is important that you are able to demonstrate an interest in the humanities, social sciences, history and current affairs in the world around you, for example through your personal projects, extra-curricular activities or reading.
