The Undergraduate College Kicks Off the 2020-21 Academic Year

Although the kick-off to a new academic year has never quite looked like this one due to the enduring health crisis, our new and returning undergraduate students showed resilience, determination and excitement as they set foot on our seven campuses for their welcome sessions and first in-person classes of the fall 2020 semester.

Dual degree programmes, interdisciplinarity, international outlooks and perspectives, the study of foreign languages: our new students chose Sciences Po for the right reasons. No matter their undergraduate programme’s geographic focus, they are all embarking on an academic and personal journey that will take them through a profound study of the social sciences and humanities, building bridges between disciplines and opening their minds to unleash their talent and set them on a path to make the changes they hope to see in the world.

Thanks to our dual campus model, all of our students are able to attend classes in person or remotely. Our staff is mobilised to ensure that safety measures and health regulations are strictly respected at all times on our campuses in order to guarantee academic continuity.
