Sign up for our newsletter to be informed of the latest news about the 2022 University Programme.

Given current public health regulations and restrictions on international travel that may prevent some students from attending the programme in person, the Summer School will be offering a selection of courses online in June and July in order to allow participants from all over the world to study at Sciences Po this summer.

The Summer School will also be offering a selection of courses on campus in June and July for students who are able to travel to Paris this summer. The number of students present on campus will be limited in accordance with social distancing and public health measures, allowing us to ensure a safe learning experience for all students.


Participants in the Summer School’s University Programme can:

Both academic tracks are offered during the June and July sessions. For each session, students pick one core course from either academic track.

For the social sciences track, students have the choice to take a social sciences course online or on campus in Paris.

Given that full immersion in French language and culture is an integral part of the academic experience at the Sciences Po Summer School, the French language track will be offered exclusively on campus in Paris.

Students participating in an on-campus session can choose to take an optional elective course. Elective courses allow participants to explore a new topic, go deeper into a subject of interest or combine the study of social sciences and French language.


Outside the classroom, participants in the on campus courses will be immersed in French language and culture through daily life in Paris. From Sciences Po’s campus in the historic Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood, students can easily reach some of Paris’ most famous landmarks by foot. The Summer School offers a variety of cultural visits and activities to give students the chance to discover the city of Paris, as well as French history and culture. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in career workshops to help them prepare their professional skills for the workplace. Housing options allow students to live together in typical Parisian apartments or student residence halls. Learn more about exploring Paris.

For the online courses, participants will be able to study alongside other students from around the world and connect to an international community that transcends continents and even time zones!

Summer School students are part of an international community, representing over 65 nationalities and a diverse range of academic and professional backgrounds. Here’s what some of them had to say about the University Programme:

“My classmates at the Summer School were very friendly and open-minded, and they came from all over the world. The multicultural ambiance was fantastic. The professors were nothing less than excellent, well-prepared and motivating. The French courses were always accompanied with very interesting topics drawn from current events or French culture. It was very enriching to debate these topics in class due to the vast diversity in perspectives given by international students.” - Begona, Italy & Mexico

“The Summer School is an amazing opportunity because you really learn a lot. Our classes are really fun and really open your mind. My classmates are amazing too! We all come from different cultures and backgrounds. The engagement of all these different people from different places around the world makes this a beautiful place to grow because we have so much to offer each other.” - Shamma, United Arab Emirates

“The social science courses I took were excellent. I gained a profound sense of knowledge regarding political science, while getting a well-rounded glimpse of university life. It was a very meaningful experience that I know will help me excel in the future. The Summer School actually helped me to select a college major! And aside from the academics, living in Paris for a month was a blast.” - Qin, China
