Université Paris Diderot - Paris 7

Situated in the heart of Paris, Université Paris Diderot is the only multidisciplinary university in Paris to offer a wide range of degrees in the Humanities, Medicine and the Sciences.

The University has acquired an international reputation for the excellence of its standards of research in all the fields in which it is active, namely science, medicine, dentistry, art and humanities and social sciences. The University has recently (2007) relocated its central administration and most of its departments in a newly developing area of Paris – known as Paris Rive Gauche – a few streets south east of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Former industrial buildings have been rehabilitated, thus preserving an important link with the history of Paris, while brand new ones have also been commissioned from world-class architects.
Sciences Po

The Institut d'études politiques de Paris (French pronunciation: ​[lɛ̃stity detyd pɔlitik dəpaˈʁi]; Paris Institute of Political Studies), simply referred to as Sciences Po (French pronunciation: ​[sjɑ̃sˈpo]), is a public research and higher education institution in Paris, France, which specializes in social sciences, politics and international affairs. It has the status of grand établissement, which allows its admissions process to be both rigorous and highly selective.

Established in 1872 as the École Libre des Sciences Politiques, Sciences Po has traditionally educated France's political and diplomatic elite, and it is broadly considered to be one of the world's most reputable and prestigious schools of the social sciences. The main Paris campus is located near the Seine River, between Boulevard Saint Germain and Boulevard Raspail. It is housed primarily in 17th- and 18th-century mansions located on the Left Bank, on and around Rue Saint-Guillaume, Rue des Saints Pères and Rue de l'Université (in the 7th arondissement).
