Sciences Po

Sciences Po is one of the most popular IEP destinations. Since 2015, exchange students from UGM are assigned to the Reims Campus. It is advisable that students interested in Sciences Po are able to converse, read, and write in French. Sciences Po is currently more suited for those concentrating in Global Politics and Security. Nevertheless, there are few courses  available to International Political Economy students.
