► Journalism exchange programme

Sciences Po offers a one-semester English language Journalism Programme for Undergraduate Exchange Students.

Your partner university will have already selected “Journalism” as the main discipline when nominating you. If this is not the case, you can apply by selecting “Journalism” as your main discipline.

All students applying for this programme must choose two other disciplines as exchange students not accepted  will be automatically redirected to the regular undergraduate exchange programme.

Students applying for the Journalism exchange programme must include a letter of motivation in English, a short CV in English as well as providing evidence of any journalistic articles that they have written or worked on (maximum 3 documents). This is a highly selective programme and only about 15 students are accepted in to it every year.
