Sciences Po Bordeaux
Arrival: by August 31, 2016
Program: September 1 - December 15

Université Bordeaux Montaigne
Arrival: by August 31, 2016
Program: September 1 - January 13, 2017

Students who take all of their courses at Sciences Po Bordeaux may leave the program after December 15th.

Students at Bordeaux Montaigne who wish to reschedule their exams for a date in December so that they do not have to take their exams in January may ask the academic director to do so, provided their home and host universities permit the rescheduling of exams. Students should remember that if they take exams in December, that does leave them with less time to prepare for their finals than the students who sit their exams in January. Students who choose to sit their exams in January (or who must take exams in January due to program length requirements) and have a January start date for spring semester at their home institution will be able to complete exams in time to return to the US, and School in France staff will work to accommodate their academic schedules. Academic year students will not be permitted to reschedule any January exams for an earlier date in December.
