The Sciences Po College is preparing to welcome its largest incoming class who will begin their undergraduate studies in Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Paris, Poitiers and Reims this Fall. Nearly half of our new students are international, coming from 87 countries. Amongst this historic class, just over 40 students will commence one of the two new Bachelor of Arts and Sciences Degrees, which will guide students to explore perspectives at the intersection of scientific study, the humanities and social sciences. Amongst the seven-campus network, the Reims campus will host the largest incoming student body with nearly 600 students.
Students were given the opportunity to prepare for this new life chapter thanks to two virtual events: “Admitted Students Day”, organized on 30 May for international degree-seeking students, and the “Welcome Class of 2023/2024” for the entire incoming class that was hosted on 4 July.
During this newly created event, students and their families discovered the unique approach to studies at the Sciences Po College during a round table, entitled “Teaching and Learning Philosophies”. The roundtable was moderated by the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Prof. Stéphanie Balme, with the participation of colleagues and Professors Jeanne Hagenbach (economics), Guillaume Piketty (history), Marta Dominguez-Folgueras (sociology), Régis Bismuth (law), and Sophie Rochefort Guillouet (classics). In the final phase of the day, newly admitted students were able to ask their campus directors questions, while interacting with their fellow students. After all these meetings and preparations, the Sciences Po College had one word of advice -- enjoy the summer and a well-deserved vacation!
