Course recommendations
Take the regular french courses and avoid the courses for international students as much as possible. The calibre is much high in genuine sciences po courses.

Personal comments
The key to success at Sciences Po is to find the right book... text books are not provided, so you will succeed based upon the fact of whether or not you can research well in libraries.

I wish I had known...
Go but be prepared to suffer. It makes the fun bit more enjoyable. Or if you dont have to suffer, spend all of mummy and daddys hard earned cash and justify it by saying that you only live in Paris once as a student.

Personal recommendation
Bit small and far too elistist fro its own good. Believes its own propaganda. But you will have superb teachers and academic facilities. Am approaching things differently than the anglosaxon model and have actually been forced to learn stuff and not cram fot end of year exams.

Final comments
Get a laptop, and ask loads of stupid but intelligent sounding question in class. In a room full of foreigners who have difficulty understanding what you are saying, you will be seen as intelligent and witty.

Although my french was pretty good before going to sciences-po, undoubtedly this year in Paris was decisive for my fluency in French. There is no better way to excel in language but to go in the actual country and live there for a year.
