Third year mobility

Étudiants internationaux avec des drapeaux

Sciences Po Aix includes a mandatory third year mobility abroad in its programme. This can take the form of an academic year at a partner university, or a combined mobility comprising an academic semester and an internship. Student can also do a full year internship mobility abroad.

A stay in a foreign university is a privileged opportunity to enrich one’s knowledge, to discover different working methods, to be immersed in a new culture, to deepen and perfect one’s practice of a foreign language. It is also an excellent way to prepare for specialised postgraduate training abroad, as many universities make prior experience of studying outside France a selection criterion.

The third-year internship at Sciences Po Aix should enable students to develop their knowledge and acquire initial field experience with a view to their future professional integration. The internship lasts a maximum of six months and can be carried out anywhere in the world, and exceptionally in France. It is often an opportunity to work and live in a country with a different language and culture; it is therefore also a strong personal, linguistic and cultural experience. The internship is carried out in a company, an international institution, an administration or an NGO. All sectors of activity are accessible: economy, law, communication, culture, humanitarian, etc.
