The Summer School’s University Programme is a unique opportunity for university students and graduates from all over the world to discover Sciences Po, France's leading university in the social sciences. In 2019, the programme hosted almost 450 students, representing 60 different nationalities and a diverse range of academic and professional backgrounds. Meet some of our students.


The University Programme is open to university students, graduates and students in their final year of secondary school who will be enrolled in university in Fall 2021. Learn more.


The University Programme offers two academic tracks in social sciences and French language. Both tracks are available during each session of the Summer School. In addition to their core social sciences or French courses, students may choose to expand their curriculum by adding an elective course for an additional cost.


The programme is held in two separate sessions during the months of June and July. Students have the choice to attend one or both sessions.  In 2021, the programme dates are:

  • June session: June 7th - July 1st, 2021
  • July session: July 5th - July 30th, 2021
