SciencesPo Summer School 2018

The Summer School’s University Programme is a unique opportunity for university students and graduates from all over the world to discover Sciences Po over the course of a summer on our Paris campus.

Study social sciences, French language, or both

Participants in the Summer School’s University Programme can:

  • study Sciences Po’s key disciplines, such as international relations, political science, or economics, in the social sciences track,
  • immerse themselves in intensive language courses in the French language track,
