While enrolled in one of Europe`s most competitive universities, Sciences Po, students will have the opportunity to study alongside French students and fully immerse themselves into university and Parisian life.

Sciences Po is ideally located in one of the most renowned neighborhoods of the city, Saint-Germain-des-Pres. Since the 17th century, the district has been the center of literary and artistic life in Paris. It is within walking distance of government ministries and the Assemblee Nationale, and the French Parliament.

Interested students can also apply to Science Po`s campuses in Dijon (specializing in Central and Eastern Europe), Menton (Middle East and the Mediterranean), Nancy (Europe and the German-speaking countries), Poitiers (Latin America, Spain and Portugal), Le Havre (Europe and Asia) and Reims (Euro-American relations).
