Personal recommendation
It's a place to study mopre than anything else - so recommendable as such, but look for your social life outside. There are a lot of international students from all over Europe and the world though, which can be exciting - we took the opportunity to set up a Europe-wide student organisation and organise a one-week conference!

Personal comments
I had spent some time in France already, so I was more or less fluent in French. You learn the political science vocabulary quickly (if you are willing to) and everybody is very helpful and understanding, if you have language problems.

I didn't use the housing services offered by Sciences Po, thus I can't really comment on them.

Personal comments
The Paris student life is spread all over the city: there's plenty to do, one just needs to find his/hers favourite spot. Luckily, the school is situated in a very lively area of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, and there are loads of nice cafés and bars just around the corner. However, within the school there's no real "student" atmosphere, and especially the french students don't seem to be going out that much.
