International tracks for international undergraduate students 2018-19

There are 3 tracks, and each has 3/4 obligatory classes and several options – SCROLL DOWN FOR DETAILS

  • 1) English Track– all classes in English (for level A1/A2/B1.1 students)
  • 2) Mixed Track – most classes in English but one or two in French (for level B1.2/ B2.1 students)
  • 3)French Track – most classes in French (for level B2.2/C1/C2 students)

COURSE REGISTRATION: online when you arrive at Sciences Po – wait to receive the registration email

 

VERY IMPORTANT: The track that you are placed in depends on your level of French (certified by you on registration).  Please do not exaggerate your level of French as the classes in French (CMs, CSs and CFs) are DIFFICULT to follow.   But please do not underestimate your level either.  Give the true level.

 

Track 3 requires a B2.2 level of French and means you study a seminar in French (large quantities of intellectual content in French with French students + debates, exams, papers, summaries).  So if you are B2.2 or above, but don’t want to study seminars in French, tick the box “track 2”.

In track 2, your seminar is in English (CMINT) but you still have 2 seminars with other international students: ‘Français pour les sciences sociales’, and ‘France, Etat, Société, Institutions’ and can choose CF and CS (lectures) in French too in which you are mixed with French students.

If you are here for a year, you can, on request, move from track 2 to track 3 in semester 2.

5 ECTS per course, 35 ECTS per student per semester (one extra class in case you fail one)

30 ECTS = CEPSS or COPS certificate
