SCIENCEs PO - STRASBOURG
welcome to
sciences po strasbourg
a guide for
international students
since its creation in 1945 – the first iep to be created outside paris – sciences
po strasbourg has been dedicated to providing top-level multidisciplinary
education: it prepares secondary school graduates for high level careers in
both french and international spheres. courses are offered in fundamental
areas of law, economics, history and political science which provide a strong
broad-based cultural background as well as tools for analysis and understanding of key contemporary issues.
Sciences Po Strasbourg, with
its European and international
perspective, is one of the French
‘Grandes Écoles’, or elite schools of
higher education.
it is one of the 10 highly selective
instituts d’Études politiques in france.
as such, sciences po strasbourg
offers a five-year multidisciplinary
curriculum leading to the internationally
recognized master’s level degree of the
institute.
each academic year, sciences po
strasbourg enrolls approximately 1400
students, including 300 international
students.
A global perspective
sciences po strasbourg has always played a prominent role in
international education and exchanges. it joined both the
erasmus and socrates programmes at an early stage and was
the first iep that included a compulsory study-abroad
programme as part of its curriculum for all third-year
students. the institute’s international strategy has been
facilitated by the geographical location of strasbourg and
the proximity of the european institutions which offer many
opportunities for varied collaboration as well as student
internship opportunities.
sciences po strasbourg now
has approximately 130
university exchange partners
all over the world.
in addition, sciences po
strasbourg has joint master’s
programmes with
universities in canada,
poland, germany and the
czech republic.

Exchange students

Strasbourg
sciences po strasbourg has signed agreements for student exchanges with
more than 100 universities throughout the world. in accordance with these
agreements, students are selected by their sending university; they continue
to pay fees to their university and are exempt from paying sciences po strasbourg fees.
depending on the requirements of their home universities, exchange students
can choose from courses offered in first, second and fourth year as well as
from a number of courses specifically aimed at visiting students. a majority
of courses are taught in french, which is why a minimum level of b1 in french
is required (b2 recommended). in addition, students can also take courses in
english, german or spanish.
courses offered include, among many others: le monde russe – economie
de la transition – marketing – comprendre les etats-unis – convention européenne des droits de l’homme – politique comparée – microfinance – understanding contemporary africa – the politics of culture in divided societies
– literatur und politischer protest in deutschland nach 1945 – comprendre la

and debates between students on current european issues.

Living in Strasbourg
with its world-famous gothic cathedral, its medieval quarter
(the petite france) and its ‘neu stadt’ (german quarters built
between the 1880s and the 1910s), strasbourg’s wellpreserved architectural heritage testifies to a long and
fascinating history on the borders between france and
germany and at the heart of europe.
this brochure is not legally binding and is provided solely for information purposes.
today, strasbourg is more european than ever, being host to
key european institutions among which the european
parliament, the council of europe, the european court of
Human rights, eurocorps, etc. strasbourg plays a leading role
in cross-border cooperation and lies at the heart of the euro
district, which encourages collaboration between france and
germany in areas such as transport, education or urban
planning. strasbourg is also an international city, what with its
30 consulates and 46 embassies.
with its firmly rooted traditions, its gastronomy, its christmas markets,
