English Track

Since 2010, Sciences Po Bordeaux has offered an English track to students enrolled in the framework of its partnership agreements with English speaking universities. A wide range of courses in the Social Sciences, the Humanities and the Economic Sciences is offered to exchange students. The programme also includes a course of French as a foreign language and various subjects at Bachelor and Master Level.

Students can choose to enroll in the programme for either a whole year course load (60 credits) or a semester course load (30 credits).

How to apply ?

The English track is open to partner universities which also offer English courses to our outgoing students.

We require a minimum of B2 level of English according to the CEFRL (IELTS 6) when the level in French has to be under B1 (courses taught in English are for beginners in French).

We do not require any official language certificates but trust our partner universities to check their nominated students’ language level both in English and French.

Both a certificate from a French language teacher and one from an English teacher are required for the student’s online application if the student does not have an official language certificate.

Students from partner institutions must be selected by their university before applying to Sciences Po Bordeaux. After their nomination, they should first contact the International relations office at their home university who will assist them with the application procedure.

Students will then have to complete the online registration procedure. They will then receive a confirmation of their admission and be informed of the formalities to be carried out in order to be officially enrolled.

Courses offered

The courses offered in 2017/2018 are detailed below. Please note few changes may occur in September. English track students may follow any course at any level.
