Course recommendations
In general, sciences po is a very demanding university. On the bright side, teachers do give consideration to the fact that you are an international student. The local students don't though. Courses are very competitive but at the same time very challenging. I would recommend Economics with Dominique Strauss Kahn as a lecturer. He is amazing. However seminar teachers are not equally agreeable and the specific course needs a lot of work!

In general science-po is doing really well catering academically for international students. I just think that teachers in the specific institution should give some credit to international students even though they do not come form the french system of education. This would make life easier for international students.

You are worked into the ground and the admin is a disaster - we had end of year exams before the end of teaching. But overall fairly good feedback and lots of continous assessment, if you like that. Signing up for courses is also a bit difficult - you have to be on line the moment inscription opens and have a priority list and lots of alternatives as you won't always get your first choices. Courses with French students are marked harder than courses with just international students.

this univerisity is really famous and, in fact, the quality of the class is high and in general the courses are extremely interesting but they should understand that flexibility and an open mind approach is anyway important for an international university

If possible -and if interested- I would strongly recommend an EU-course called "Questions européennes", it was amazing!

There is very little support from most of the teachers, which is pretty amazing considering the very good reputation of the school. The library and it-facilities can only be described by one word: they suck!

Unless you are really up-to-speed with your French, it'll be hard to get to know the French students... although I didn't really make as much of an effort as maybe I should have...

I wouldn't recommend this university unless you are very disciplined and very self-directed; the work is challenging and I found there was amazingly little guidance, support or direction (at least compared to the system I was used to at home).
