2 - CES (Certificate of European Studies)

Potential applicants : Students in an exchange programme or in an non exchange programme.

The Certificate of European Studies (CES) is a university certificate awarded after successful completion of one semester of study at Sciences Po Strasbourg. It is taught exclusively in English and aims at enabling international students with little or no prior skills in the French language to gain access to the excellence of a French Grande Ecole’s programme of study. By combining
lectures, seminars, field trips and educational visits, the CES focuses on Europe in a global perspective, while also introducing students to the French language and culture. Thanks to Sciences Po Strasbourg’s long-standing partnership with European institutions such as the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, international students will therefore have a unique
opportunity to gain both theoretical and practical understanding of Europe from the very heart of its capital.
