  1. Hi, I was recently admitted to the MPP at Sciences Po in the Digital, New Technology and Public Policy stream. Now I had applied to the course because I really liked the courses listed on the website, the policy lab component, and of course, Paris. However, I have been reading up on this forum about the University, and that has left a bittersweet taste. I do not speak French, but the course I am accepted to is taught entirely in English. From the posts on the Forum, I feel that the university's career services aren't too friendly for the international students, the administration is disorganized and the job scenario is not uplifting, even though the teaching is quite good. These posts are from a few years ago, though. I have admits from a few US universities (still waiting on the big names). Since the tuition at Sciences Po is much lower, and there's a bunch of scholarships available from our government to students studying in France, I am conflicted. Anybody on the Forum with information/opinions on the university? It's like a black box at the moment, with any info I have only coming from the School's website.
  2. Hiya, I was just admitted to the MPP at Sciences Po in the Digital, New Technology and Public Policy stream! Any other admits out there? How is everyone feeling?
  3. Trying to decide between1. LSE MSc International Political Economy (1 yr)2. Dual Degree with Sciences Po (International Economic Policy) and the University of Toronto (Global Affairs) (2yrs total)My background is in Investment Banking in Canada. Interested in moving towards a career at the OECD, World Bank, UN etc.Although LSE ranks higher than Sciences Po in most areas I'm concerned that I won't be as competitive without having an internship during my degree.Hoping for some help!Cheers
  4. Hi, Anyone heard back from Sciences Po PSIA Development? My last referee submitted his recommendation on 3rd Jan and I haven't heard back since. The application follow up page has not changed from when I first submitted the form and this makes me doubt if there was something wrong.
  5. Hey everybody,I had applied to a few schools across Europe for my master's Degree and have received offers from the following schools in the aforementioned disciplines. Master's in International Security @ Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po (Awaiting Scholarship Information) Master's in International Affairs @ Hertie School Of Governance, Berlin (Scholarship request rejected) I would really appreciate if you guys can provide my some inputs/insight that can help me make an informed decision at the earliest.
  6. Did anyone apply to the double MA in journalism and international affairs at Sciences Po, Paris this year or in previous years? If someone did apply or has attended, could you comment on your application experience/subsequent studies? On a general note, how are foreign journalism degrees looked upon if one wished to find a job in the United States or elsewhere upon graduation - and does it hold a light to "top" American programs such as Columbia, Berkeley, etc.? Thanks in advance!
  7. How competitive is admissions to the MA in History program at Sciences Po? I understand that Sciences Po is normally extremely difficult to get admission into, but I thought that was because they are a renowned institution for political science and international relations degrees. Many people - French and non-French alike - I have spoken with told me they did not even know that Sciences Po had an MA in History. Furthermore, the MA in History at Sciences Po only requires B1/ B2 in French, unlike most of their French-taught degrees that require C1 or higher in French. So, does anyone know anything about how difficult it is to get accepted into this program? Do you know anything about funding for the program or anything about it in general?
  8. hello, not sure if a lot of you guys are familiar with Sciences-po but it's quite big in IR/Development/Political science. I got accepted in the international development(ma) and was wondering if there was anyone else. one thing to mention is that i'm not sure if i'll accept the offer because i'm interested in educational development and it seems that Sciences-po doesn't have a lot of courses in education.. seriously considering if i have to apply for the 2018-2019 term for American GSEs (+European schools too such as Oxbridge GSEs specializing in education development) thanks
  9. Hello everyone, im currently deciding between a few options for grad school fall 2017 start and would love your opinions. I have been accepted into the following programs: LSE MSc In Global Politics Sciences Po MSc In Public policy iheid (graduate institute in Geneva) in international affairs and have also applied to the dual degree between LSE sciences po (Psia) ... haven't heard back yet but assuming I get in, which of the four options would you choose? For some background, I went to undergrad in the US and majored in comparative literature so I am a bit of a crossover case for these programs. I honestly am not sure what I want to do, so I'd love to go to a school with excellent career services and obviously high quality courses. Since I was previously studying literature and science (as I was planning to go to med school in the us) I am a bit concerned about finding work after my masters since I have no work experience. let me know your thoughts!! thanks a bunch!
  10. Hi everyone! This is my first topic (and post) so hopefully I'm doing this right. Im just looking for any advice right now with regards to the decisions I'm going to have to make next year that I'm very nervous about. Right now I'm doing my undergrad in Neuroscience at the University of Toronto and my plan was always (if med school didn't happen) to do a Masters in Genetics or Developmental Bio. I started looking at some other programs and then one thing led to another and I stumbled upon this gem of a program at UPMC-Sorbonne University: http://www.master.bmc.upmc.fr/en/02_international/01_BioDev/index.php (International Master: From Molecular Developmental Biology to Biomedicine, Evolution and Systems Biology) I've always wanted to do a PhD in France (partially because of the cultural enhancements) but mostly because the 3-4year research intense EU PhD sounds a lot more appealing than the 5-7 year teaching/researching/networking/starving slog we have here. Im just assuming a Masters in France would better prepare me for a PhD there too. My main concerns now are: 1. Can I get in (cumulativeGPA: 3.52/4 - annualGPA: 3.88/4 - 1 publication in the works - 2 research paid internships) 2. Can a foreigner make enough connections and get enough publications to secure a PhD position? 3. UofT (and many canadian schools) pay their masters students - are non-paid masters "a cut-below" 4. Is this school any good? It seems to maybe be the best research University in all of France but the rankings are all over the place (but that may just be a result of anglo-bias) 5. Could I come back to Canada - maybe try the UK? NOTE: I have no desire to ever live in America so that "weakness" of EU programs not being respected there isn't really relevant to me. Thanks SO MUCH to anyone who can give me any advice or input Have a great day!
  11. Hi! I'm an international student in a top US college and I'm seeking advice for my future. I think I want to pursue a master degree in Europe because I'm a person who loves to change and doesn't really enjoy stability. I could apply to masters in US graduate schools and is likely to get good results but I want to learn something more about Europe. I'm now deciding what master should I apply to? I prefer studying in France because I want to learn a new language and culture, but I don't know what master is suitable for me. I'm interested in political science, law, economics, history. I saw that in US, there are degrees like Master in European Studies, for example, Yale, Columbia. However, I know that the Education of US is very very good, but I don't know how it is in Europe. I'm sure it's good, but I am still not sure what are their strengths and weaknesses. I now see that many German students go to US to pursue graduate degress, like Phd! But for master degrees, I don't know. And I don't know why they came to US but not in Germany. This summer I talked to a person who knows a lot about world education. They told me that for undergraduate, US is the best but you have to use it in the right way. For European Schools, they told me that their graduate degrees are pretty good, but not for public schools since there are so many people. For private schools, they are really good like ENS, Sciences Po etc. I compare the programs on several fields between top US and European Schools, basically French. I found that if I did MBA or MPA, I would rather choose US since US schools are of higher reputation and also their faculty is also stronger. But for master degrees like European Studies. Even though US has close ties with Europe and many European professors go to US to teach. I still think that the European Schools are better. Probably because it is Europe? Not that simple! I found out that for courses in US graduate schools, they are not very systematic and their research is kind of different. For example, Yale simply unites all European fields into one and it didn't give really clear on what courses you should take. You should decide your own. Well, I'm sure there is more freedom but I think knowledge needs continuity, especially for Master degree, or I may get really little information and Yale probably has a clear path for what students to study if they are focusing on European Union. Another thing is that European schools on master in European studies have courses that US colleges would not cover. For example, EU and China. I don't know whether I have to go to Europe to have a better understanding of modern Europe or I should just stay in the US. I really love to visit Europe and study there! But I also hope to choose the right place to study! Sorry for having you reading so long, but this is all what I've learnt and thought. Also I don't know whether this is the right forum but on the website, they call this a master degree in social science. Thanks!
