Erasmus +Scholarship/Exchange Programme to study at Sciences Po, France

Posted on September 27, 2017


A scholarship is available for a University of Pretoria (UP) student to spend a semester at Sciences Po, an international research-intensive university, both selective and open onto the world, ranking among the finest institutions in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences. An innovator in international Bachelor of Arts dual-degree programmes, Sciences Po has established other dual-degree programmes with Columbia University, the University of Hong Kong, Keio University, the National University of Singapore, University College London, and the University of British Columbia.

Sciences Po hosts 13 000 students, half of whom are international, hailing from 150 countries. In order to recruit the best students from around the world, Sciences Po offers programmes taught entirely in English at the undergraduate and graduate levels. One does not need to speak French to enrol in these programmes, but students can become multilingual with intensive French-language courses during their studies at Sciences Po. Sciences Po has campuses in seven French cities: Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Paris, Poitiers and Reims. These cities boast exceptional historical and cultural heritage.
