You will be asked to rank your first- and second-choice geographic minors at Sciences Po for Years 1 and 2, and to indicate a subject area of interest for Years 3 and 4 at UBC.

Sciences Po Campus Selection (Years 1 and 2)

      • Asia minor at Le Havre (instruction in English)
      • Middle East–Mediterranean minor at Menton (instruction in English)
      • North America minor at Reims (instruction in English)

UBC undergraduate degree program of interest (Years 3 and 4)

In your written response, you will be asked to address a few prompts demonstrating both your interest in the specifics of the program—including your motivation to study the geographic region of focus within the Sciences Po minor, and what the synthesis with the UBC BA provides—as well as give the committee a preview of your academic interests and perspective.

Your responses will be submitted as a single PDF file. The specific prompts are still under review by the Joint Admissions Committee, and will be announced in October 2023.

A 1-2 page curriculum vitae in PDF format. Be sure to include your education and any experiences, accomplishments, or accolades.
