Recognition of student engagement within an association, a community project or a professional activity

Student engagement in the spheres of non-profit associations, community service, political, union or professional activities, lies at the core of Sciences Po’s academic mission.

Over and above action for the common good or in the general interest, these forms of engagement are opportunities to acquire or develop a range of skills. Some of these are expected for the completion of our students’ higher education.
Sciences Po’s recognition of this engagement can take two forms, either as an enhancement within the context of the diploma or as study adjustments.

The recognition procedures are decided by the Student Life and Education Committee, according to the articles D. 611-7 to D. 611-9 of the French Code of Education (fr.), appertaining to law n°2017-86, dated 27 January 2017, relative to equality and citizenship.
