Preparing your arrival

Preparing your arrival


Sciences Po Lille does not have a campus then we cannot provide housing for incoming international students.

In the other hand as Lille has a large student population, it is relatively easy to find student housing.

The International Office can provide a list of landlords accustomed to dealing with foreign students.

You can also check on the Facebook groups of our dual degrees programs (FIFA, FIFB or FIFE) where our former students publish any accommodation opportunity. As well the BDI (International Student Organization) can help in the search for housing, even if we encourage international students to tackle this task themselves.

To have more information about accommodation opportunities, please have a look at our housing guide.

Welcome Meeting

At the beginning of July of every year a Welcome Meeting is held for the new dual degree students. During this meeting you will be given useful information concerning each diploma, courses, registration, and so on.

Introductive seminar

At early September just before the semester starts, students need to attend an introductive seminar. During one week, they can attend different courses as Intercultural workshop, Methodology or Economy.
