Admission to a dual degree programme

Please note

Admissions for the 2018 intake are now closed. Admissions for the 2019 intake will open in October 2018. 

Sciences Po has signed dual degree conventions with several major universities throughout the world. Each year, these programmes enable students selected by both institutions to complete one year of studies at Sciences Po and another at the partner institution, with a degree awarded by both universities.

The prestige of these degrees and the linguistic skills acquired, together with the experience of student life in two different countries, are advantages greatly prized by potential employers today, particularly European and international companies and organisations.

Which procedure is right for you?

Admission to dual degree programmes is very selective. We advise you to start preparing well in advance and to put together outlined personal goals and a coherent academic plan.  

Admission is granted on the basis of the evaluation of the application form and the required documents.

Important information

  • You cannot apply for two dual degree programmes. You can however apply for a dual degree programme and a graduate programme. In which case your first choice must be dual degree with the graduate programme as your second. If deadlines for these two programmes differ, you must respect the first to come to term.
  • The admissions decision for dual degree programmes is made only after all applications have been received and the relevant programme deadline has expired. Candidates are then notified as to the outcome of their application two to three months after the selected programme's application deadline.
  • Students must take up their place on a dual degree course at the beginning of the academic year following admission. It is not possible to defer entry.
  • Campus France does not grant the Eiffel scholarship to the dual degree programme students (except for Journalism Sciences Po/Columbia university and first year students of the dual degree Environmental sciences and policy Sciences Po/université Pierre et Marie Curie).
