Studying in the “City of Light”

The Summer School's University Programme makes the most of its setting in the heart of the French capital. Classes utilise the city as a laboratory for learning, and feature trips to monuments, museum exhibits and tours through historic districts. Outside the classroom, participants are immersed in French language and culture through daily life in Paris.
In 2024, students will have the incredible opportunity to live and study in the host city of the Olympic Games! Students, athletes, delegates and fans will be travelling from all over the world to be a part of this historic moment in Paris.

Sciences Po’s Paris Campus

The campus, located in the heart of the historic Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood, is mere minutes from some of Paris’ most famous landmarks.

Exploring Paris

“Living in Paris for a summer really allows you to have an authentic experience.  You’re not just a tourist anymore.  You can take it slow and discover the city from a different perspective – from the Seine to the street cafés.” – Jessica, Summer School student.

The Summer School offers a wide variety of cultural visits and activities for students to discover the city of Paris, as well as French history and culture.

We also offer the opportunity for students to network and make new connections through activities such as conferences and professional workshops. These opportunities are also available to students taking online courses over the summer.
