How does the admission procedure work?

1

Choose your program

 

Choose in advance which Sciences Po campus you would like to study, and whether you want to undertake a Dual Degree. Our tutors will help you understand which program is most in line with your passions, aptitudes and personal preferences. The offer is really wide, and we recommend starting this process possibly in the summer before the last year of high school.

Se scegli un Dual Degree: completa l'application

Se vuoi studiare due anni a Sciences Po e due anni in un'altra università per ottenere due titoli, dovrai seguire una procedura di ammissione specifica in base all'università partner che sceglierai. Potresti dover sostenere esami come SAT, IELTS/TOEFL, scrivere lettere di presentazione e motivazionali, e presentare CV e voti scolastici. Ad ogni passo, i tutor di Valdo Academics ti guideranno e supporteranno.

If you choose the Sciences Po bachelor's degree: prepare all the necessary material 

If you prefer to study Sciences Po's bachelor's degree, which includes two years on a multicultural thematic campus in France and one year of exchange abroad, you will submit your application directly to Sciences Po through its online platform. The unified admission procedure of the Bachelor's Degree consists of four assessments, each of which is scored out of 20. These assessments are the same for all Sciences Po applicants:

  • Results of baccalaureate or foreign equivalent exams/Prediction of final grade

  • Academic performance and progress

  • Written pieces 

    • ​Three writing exercises: 1. the candidate's personal background, 2. the candidate's motivations for Sciences Po, 3. an essay on one of the five proposed themes

  • Interview​

Are you interested in both a Dual Degree and the Sciences Po path? Don't worry, you will be able to apply to both by indicating the option you prefer, thus leaving more doors open and the possibility to choose, should you be admitted to both programs.

Prepare for the interview 

The final step of the Sciences Po admissions process is an interview. The interview is both academic and aptitude-based, but focuses primarily on your critical thinking skills. The Sciences Po interview begins with a presentation of the candidate, followed by an analytical commentary on an image, and a final speech on the candidate's background, motivations, intellectual ambitions for Sciences Po.

Why image analysis? Visual messages have their own language and always have a purpose: to communicate, convince, persuade, criticize.

We at Valdo Academics can help you prepare both this and the double degree admission interview. 

We can help prepare you for both this and the Dual Degrees admissions interviews.
