International students

Welcoming international students, Sciences Po Toulouse practices an educational policy open to the world.

Sciences Po Toulouse has a constant policy of welcoming international students and provides them with a reception office, with a teaching and administrative team. Each year, Sciences Po Toulouse welcomes nearly 250 international students with nearly 30 nationalities represented.

International students can register:

  • as part of an exchange (Erasmus+ or bilateral agreement with a partner university)
  • as a Free Mover (independent candidate)


​​​​​​Studying at Sciences Po Toulouse

International students have access to a wide choice of courses that cover all fields of the Sciences Po Toulouse degree: political science, law, international relations, sociology, history, economics.

Exchange students who are studying at Sciences Po Toulouse for the full academic year can apply for the one-year University Diploma in International and Comparative Studies, which corresponds to 60 ECTS. This programme is divided into two linguistic branches : the English track and the French track.

Our programme in International and Comparative Studies presents courses specially designed for international students. Compulsory courses in French and methodology provide students with the necessary skills during their study stay. These French language and civilization method conferences in small groups favor exchanges and interactions.

Students coming in the frame of an exchange (Erasmus+ or bilateral agreement) can choose among the courses in this program and will be awarded the ECTS credits corresponding to the validated courses.
