    I don't think the scheme is running for UK students yet, but I could be wrong! It is running in France, maybe you don't need to be French to get it actually.

    I think you can apply as a UK student - the banks in France are offering loans to incoming and outgoing students.

    Hi there!

    So glad I've found others applying for Human Rights and Humanitarian Action! I got my 'admissible' email exactly a week ago saying a should receive a response by mid-January. I'm so nervous! Btw what have you guys studied? I'm in the final year of BA French AND International Relations with Arabic. I don't have that much related work experience but I did work as an advisor for Amnesty International a few years back... Worried that I haven't got enough work experience...

    Good luck everyone!

    Congratulations! I have applied for this course! How long did it take for you to hear back?
    Hello ). I´ll keep my fingers crossed for you. I applied on 13 November, got the "your application is admissible" email after approximately two weeks and the final results on 10 December. So it took them not even a whole month. It was really quick. I was quite suprised .

    Hi! Congratulations on the offer! I applied as well but only a few days ago. Could I asked what kind of background you have in terms of previous degree and professional experience? Thanks!!
    Hello Anastasia .

    Sure. I´ll be finishing my law degree in April 2016 so this is going to be my second master. My main area of focus is international law (especially humanitarian law, armed conflicts, post-conflict situations), however, I´ve decided that I really need to get also some serious geopolitical background. I studied one year in the UK through the Erasmus+ programme and participated in various student research activities at my home university plus in numerous moot courts (human rights, asylum and refugee law, Jessup), I have three academic publications and I contribute to various legal websites and journals on regular basis. Regarding my professional experience, I worked as a legal adviser for an NGO focusing on migrants and asylum seekers and I had internships at our national UNHCR office, the ministry of foreign affairs, the ministry of industry and trade, and the Permanent Mission of my country at the UN in NY. When it comes to volunteering, I participated in three international workcamps abroad. I suppose that this could also help. My grades... I suppose that the equivalent would be the Upper Second Class. I speak Czech, English, Spanish and a bit (big emphasis on the word "bit" ) French. Huh... I really need to work on my French.

    Please, if you have any questions, feel free to ask . I´ll do my best to help.

    Hi again ). I´m thinking about it too . Have you been able to find more information about it? Sciences PO is on the list of the cooperating institutions so that should be OK. However, I´ve tried to go through the website of the French bank (http://www.banquepopulaire.fr/portai...s/Default.aspx) which should be part of the scheme and I can not find any details. Although my French is quite poor so maybe I´m just not looking properly.

    Oh and regarding the erasmus + loan, I think Banque Populaire will only start providing those loans in the spring of 2015!
    A question to those who got accepted: do you already received the email with the student number (to accept or decline the offer)?

    I just received my acceptance letter from Sciences Po. I had previously been told that I wouldn't hear back from the university until "mid-January."

    FYI: I applied to the Masters in International Security program.

    Good luck to you all!

    Hey, I made the Facebook group! If you search "Sciences Po PSIA - Accepted (2016)", you should be able to find it. I tried to post the link earlier, but TSR wouldn't let me.

    Right now the group is private, but I can make it public if that is preferred.
