Une expérience ternie par le Covid
Amalia F

Overall
J'ai passé deux superbes années sur le campus de Reims, et je dois cela aux rencontres faites là-bas, et à la vie étudiante, qui, jusqu'à la crise du COVID, était une des grandes raisons qui justifiait le coût de l'école. En effet, il ne faut pas s'attendre à être émerveillé par les professeurs et les cours dès la première année. C'est en deuxième année, avec la sélection de notre spécialisation (entre Humanités Politiques, Economie et Sociologie, et Politique et Gouvernment) que l'on a enfin l'opportunité de s'épanouir intellectuellement. En tant normal, la vie associative, culturelle et festive est ce qui donne à Sciences Po le + qu'une fac normale ne proposerait pas.

Pros
La diversité des cours dans cette école est un de ses grands points forts: ainsi j'ai pu prendre des cours de litérature, de théâtre et de cinéma, et c'est une flexibilité que j'ai grandement apprécié.
Cons
Malgré leurs efforts, j'ai souvent buté contre les incohérences de la gestion administrative de l'établissement, notamment durant la crise du Covid.

Good quality overall but with some minor flaws to adjust

Overall
Sciences Po Paris is an extremely renowded university in France especially in the public administration and political science degrees. This quality teaching can be explained as the institution does host some of the most competent and renowned scholars in the fields. However Sciences Po also has very respectful results in the sociology and Economic fields. The only minor flaw that can be specified is the slow pace at which Sciences Po is undertaking a more practical approach of its studies. Despite some efforts classes in Sciences Po still lack enough  perspective into the current outside environnement, especially in undergraduate classes, which remain very theoric and generalistic.

An intellectually stimulating and highly interactive experience

Overall
Sciences Po Paris is definitely one of the best universities in France and in Europe and is a perfect destination for students wanting to pursue an (under-)graduate degree in political sciences, international relations, law, international economics and energy studies. 
The professors have been very passionate and energetic about their field of research. Courses are usually taught by one university professor and a practicioner in the respective field, for example, an employee at EDF Trading, which makes teaching more praxis-oriented, dynamic and interactive.

Pros
Highly deducated staff and faculty, intellectually stimulating module content and interactive learning experience, a  wide range of professional workshops, social events, team projects and associations
Cons
No student accomodation provided directly by the university, though Sciences Po does have a website listing all appartment postings and other types of accomodation offers by French landlords in or outside of Paris

Overall
I wish I had known...
Our home university had advised on everything we really needed to know. After that it was nice discovering things on my own. It is good to know that it is impossible to get taxis on the stree in Paris. You need to get them from specific places.

Personal recommendation
Really challenging and academically satisfying. Nobody who signs up for sciences po should expect an easy year abroad, it is hard and it needs a lot of work especially in my case where the year abroad counted towards my degree.

Final comments
I would advise international students to do the STAGE D'INTERGRATION in September. Even if your French is good it is really important to do it so that you learn your way around university before the classes start.
