Stage de français intensif - Intensive French Program

The Stage de français intensif is custom-designed for PSIA international students, who come from over 100 countries. It offers students the chance to develop and strengthen their fluency in French, regardless of their initial level. We feel there is no better way for you to start each new semester and to make the most of PSIA's bilingual and multicultural environment.

The program (or stage, in French) is based on an innovative, "layered" combination of small-group workshops and other whole-group activities and is taught by a group of carefully selected teachers. Individual tutoring sessions are sometimes available as well. Language and culture learning are emphasized through interaction and engagement with your fellow students. With a high level of commitment and active participation, you are certain to improve much more than your French grammar and vocabulary.

The Stage takes place twice annually, in the week before the beginning of each semester.



The Spring 2023 edition will take place from Tuesday 17 to Thursday 19 January 2023, from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm and from 14:00 pm to 16:30 pm.

For the Spring pre-semester session students will receive information via email. They will have to fill in a form that will be essential for the PSIA French team to pre-register them. 


All year long and as soon as you are a registered student at Sciences Po, students can consult or borrow books (online and onsite) to learn and improve French proficiency at Sciences Po's library (27, rue Saint Guillaume). You will find the catalogues in the following links:
