Languages in the third year
Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, some students are unable to spend their fall 2020 semester at their host university. For those students, an academic semester has been organized by Sciences Po.
You are spending the fall semester of your third year at Sciences Po
In order to ensure a smooth start to the semester, we ask that you respect the following instructions for your course registration:
- registration in one of the languages you were enrolled in during the previous semester (only one language is possible for the fall semester)
- registration in the language level indicated by your instructor the previous semester (no level change will be authorized)
- Following the completion of course registration, modifications to language course enrollment will not be possible.
You are preparing your third year abroad
For the duration of your studies, it is highly recommended to pursue language instruction that you began while at Sciences Po. In addition, it is recommended to reach the highest level possible to meet potential English requirements for admission to certain graduate degrees.
Important: Studying a new foreign language during the third year abroad requires prior authorization from the Sciences Po languages department.
Language tests: Students wishing to study abroad are required to take language tests required by partner universities (IELTS or TOEFL iBT for English-speaking countries), and need to register in time. Some universities in non-English speaking countries that propose instruction in English also require English test results (in Japan, the Scandinavian countries for example).
Students must submit TOEFL / IELTS results at the same time as their application for their third-year study abroad.
No language test is required for an internship.
