Exchange opportunity

I am pleased to announce that Sciences Po will offer an online Winter School for the first time in January 2021. Following the success of our online Summer School in Summer 2020, we are excited to propose this new opportunity for students from our partner universities around the world to discover Sciences Po.
Dates: January 7th-22nd, 2021
Academic programme: The Winter School allows students to explore contemporary issues by choosing one core course to study intensively from among Sciences Po’s key social sciences disciplines. Courses are taught entirely in English by Sciences Po professors and researchers. January 2021 courses include:
  • World Politics
  • Fighting Inequalities and Social Risks in the 21st Century: A Global Perspective
  • The Age of Economists: Globalization, Growth and Inequalities
  • Human Rights and Global Development
  • View all course overviews
All courses are taught live via Zoom, in small-group, interactive seminars to allow for maximum interaction between professors and students. Each class includes 30 contact hours and is worth 4 ECTS. Courses will be held on weekdays between 1:00 PM and 5:30 PM (Paris time); exact schedules for each class will be available in November.
Outside of class: Online programme participants are part of an international community that transcends continents and time zones. In 2020, students from over 30 countries and a diverse range of academic and professional backgrounds participated in the online Summer School. Outside of class, students have the chance to get to know each other and explore French culture through a virtual activities programme that includes a variety of social and cultural activities, such as virtual visits of Parisian landmarks or conferences and debates on current events.
Applying: The online Winter School is open to university students and graduates from across the world. The eligibility criteria and application procedure are detailed on our website. Candidates must apply through Sciences Po’s online application system. Admissions open on October 5th, 2020 and close on November 25th.
The Summer School team is available to answer any questions you may have about the online Winter session, or our other programmes (Summer School programmes for university and high school students, custom programmes for university groups). For more information, please visit our website:
