If you are an international student and your university insists that you must study at Master’s level, please read this carefully:

Most MA programmes only run in the fall semester (most students complete an internship in the spring). Only MMO 4th year (French taught) is available in the spring semester.

THERE IS A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF PLACES AVAILABLE ON THE MASTERS DEGREES.  Before nominating your students, please contact incomingmobility@sciencespo-grenoble.fr to enquire whether there is a place available.

If you have very good level French (B2+), to avoid schedule clashes, you must join the whole semester/year (A4 or A5) of ONE Master’s programme (choose here http://www.sciencespo-grenoble.fr/formations/master-second-cycle/) and do all the courses in it just like a French student.  You will earn 30 ECTS for this semester of study.  You will not mix undergraduate and graduate level classes.  You may be exempted from language classes on request if they do not fit your profile.  Sport (5 ECTS) is optional and must fit with your schedule if you choose it.

If you DO NOT have very good level French, we have ONE Master’s programme taught mainly in English: MA in European studies “master GE” (between 20-30 ECTS per semester including French and English language modules 2 ECTS each / sport is optional +5 ECTS).  To join it, you must have good knowledge of European law, economics, politics and excellent English (if this is not the case, you must join the undergraduate international tracks).

To avoid schedule clashes, you must not mix 2 different masters programmes and not mix undergraduate and graduate level classes.

Please send an email to incomingmobility@sciencespo-grenoble.fr as soon as you have been nominated to present your choice of MA programme/year.

Also, although term dates are a bit different for MA students, we do encourage you to join all the integration activities in September and/or January with the other international and French students.  Please contact incomingmobility@sciencespo-grenoble.fr  if you wish to do so.

DPC: The Master’s programme DPC is not open to international students as it is specific to French local and regional policy-making.

Other master’s have a restricted number of spaces so if you wish to study at graduate level, you must contact incomingmobility@sciencespo-grenoble.fr to formulate your request.  Places will be assigned on a first come first served basis as some Master’s programmes (GE…) are rapidly oversubscribed.

You will not be able to view course syllabuses until the start of term.
