Sciences Po is one of France’s most independent institutions of higher education, with greater autonomy than the grandes écoles and universities. Decisions are taken by Boards with broad sovereign powers.

40% of the 9,000 Sciences Po students come from 50 countries outside France. Over 1,000 Sciences Po students are spending a year abroad or engaged in an international internship as part of their studies every year. 350 universities have signed a student and academic exchange agreement with Sciences Po.

Sciences Po’s educational programmes have a strong international dimension thanks to multi-lingual teaching and the comparative and international perspectives of the courses. The seven Sciences Po undergraduate campuses are places of strong international integration. The third year abroad is the culmination of this fundamentally international education. Double degrees at master’s level reflect Sciences Po’s international stature and its status as one of the top world universities.
