Munster university's visit

SPL and Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität of Münster are historical and long-lasting partners. Our cooperation is multidimensional: naturally through the Erasmus + program (exchanging students, professors and staffs) but also through our Franco-German dual degree in social and political sciences. 
Created in 1999, this Franco-German dual degree offers students the opportunity to study social and political sciences in France, at Sciences Po Lille, and in Germany, at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität of Münster.

Adrian Pabst's testimonial

"Teaching at Sciences Po Lille this year has been an enormous honour and pleasure."

"The staff are extremely welcoming and made sure that I found my way round the new building, which is stunning: it combines​ beautiful old architecture with a very creative use of glass and steel to create a wonderful atmosphere, especially in the amphitheatres where I delivered my lectures."
