Diploma of French and European Studies
The Diploma of French and European Studies is a one-semester course especially designed for international students who do not master the French language well enough to enroll in French-taught courses. The focus of this program is set on France and Europe in the World: Governance, Institutions, History and Culture. Classes are taught in English and, in addition, students have a compulsory language course in French as a foreign language, adapted to even the lowest levels of proficiency.
Students who speak French, even as a native language, can also take the programme. The French as a foreign language course will be replaced by other courses worth the same number of ECTS.
Students coming to Sciences Po Lyon as freemovers have to apply online and fulfill all application requirements as described in the application form (download section). They have to pay a €1400 tuition fee. Fees are waived for students coming to Sciences Po Lyon within an exchange program with partner universities.
