The University Programme proposes two academic tracks in social sciences and French language. Students in the social sciences track delve into one of Sciences Po’s core disciplines, with courses in international relations, political science, economics, public policy, sociology, history and more. Courses are taught in English by Sciences Po professors. Students in the French language track are placed at one of six levels of French, from complete beginner to advanced. At all levels, classes focus on developing language skills while also delving into French culture and contemporary issues in France.
Eligibility: High school students who will still be enrolled in secondary school in Fall 2020. Learn more about eligibility and language requirements.

The Pre-College Programme is a unique opportunity for secondary school students to discover university academics at Sciences Po. Master classes, taught entirely in English by Sciences Po professors and researchers, address current international issues from an interdisciplinary perspective, while elective classes allow students to delve into one of Sciences Po’s core disciplines (international relations, political science, law, etc.).
Course availability: The Summer School has rolling admissions and admitted candidates may register for courses on a first-come, first-served basis. Candidates are therefore encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible. Class sizes are limited and classes will be closed when they fill up.
