General Information

Sciences Po Lille has signed numerous agreements with universities from all around the world. Within this framework, we welcome students in our school every year - for a semester or a full academic year, from one of our 190 agreements.

Origin of our exchange students

Most part of our exchange students are coming within the framework of our agreements with partner universities, which are located over the 5 continents. These partnerships allow us to welcome students from a huge variety of backgrounds, and thus to strengthen multiculturalism and diversity at Sciences Po Lille.

Erasmus + agreements

Sciences Po Lille has signed the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education. As an active part of the Erasmus + program, Sciences Po Lille is happy to count a large number of Erasmus + partners.

Bilateral agreements

Our school has also reached numerous agreements with universities outside the Erasmus + program. This way we can count with our strong and fruitful cooperations in the United States, Canada, China, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, and many other countries.

Free Movers

International students can also apply outside of our cooperation agreements. These free movers will have access to the same courses as our students coming within the framework of our partnerships. They can study at Sciences Po Lille during one semester or the full academic year. Free movers will have to pay tuition fees:

- for 1 semester: between 300€ and 1300€
- for the full academic year: between 300€ and 3200€

Please note that accepted free movers students will be asked to send financial documents to the Sciences Po Lille international office in order to calculate their future tuition fees.
