International education networks

International education networks

The international integration at Sciences Po Lille is also exemplified in our participation in several international networks related to the investments "of internationalisation and globalization in higher education".

By playing an active role in the work and events organized by these different structures, Sciences Po Lille intends to use these practices and approaches in the internationalization of its curriculum, to improve its international visibility, increase its opportunities to meet partners (current and future) , allow its teachers and students to participate in international research projects, diversify, expand and internationalize its attractiveness in terms of recruitment (students and teachers), and to develop and facilitate all of its mobility programs.

These different arenas are opportunities for Sciences Po Lille to learn from its international partners and thereby deepen its entire policy of internationalization.
