Exchange Programme

20 years ago, Sciences Po took the pioneering step of introducing a compulsory year abroad as part of its undergraduate curriculum. Today, the university is one of the most active hubs for academic exchanges in the world, and a major player in international student mobility.

More than 1,500 Sciences Po students study abroad on a Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD exchange every year. This is made possible by the 480 partnerships we have forged with universities across five continents.

Sciences Po also welcomes more than 2,200 international students annually from this wide-ranging network of university partners. Exchange students spend a semester or a year at Sciences Po, joining the Bachelor’s degree programme at our Undergraduate College, Master’s programmes at our Graduate Schools, or as PhD candidates. Once here, they are fully integrated into our student community.
