Continued Support from the Sciences Po Health Centre
The Sciences Po Health Centres of each campus remain available and equipped to help you if you need.
Particular attention is being given to psychological support: the measures of confinement adopted by the government to restrict the spread of the virus can disrupt our routine, force changes upon our daily lives and create stressful situations.
Students requiring medicinal treatment will be able to receive their medication in pharmacies, even if the prescription has expired. The validity of prescriptions has been extended until the end of May.
