Training and support for associative projects

Training for student association leaders

Included in the resources offered by Sciences Po to those in charge of student associations and initiatives, is a range of specific training courses comprising 5 mandatory modules.

These foundation classes are tailored to be highly practical and valuable assets for associative activities at Sciences Po.

The executive teams of student associations and initiatives are the primary beneficiaries.

Mandatory modules (taught in French)

Optional modules (taught in French)

Associative workshops

Open to the student community as a whole, these workshops, run by specialists from the associative or philanthropic sectors in France or internationally, provide the necessary resources for setting up and running a non-profit project within an association.

Students can therefore choose their workshop according to the field they wish to discover or explore further.
This optional course, open to the whole of the student community, offers the necessary tools to devise and develop an associative project, whether it be at Sciences Po or elsewhere.

Two different formats:

  • Intensive workshops: 16 hours over a period of 8 weeks, enabling participants to acquire a strong foundation and the skills required to develop projects for an association or a not-for-profit organisation (NGO). Subject to attendance, these workshops can earn 2 ECTS credits.
  • Focus workshops: between 4 and 6 hours, addressing a specific theme linked to the running or development of a project (sources of funding, project management, etc.). Subject to attendance, these workshops can earn 1 ECTS credit.
