Question: 
Are your joint Master’s programmes (Joint Master in Journalism and International Affairs or Joint Master of Law and Finance) considered dual degrees?
Réponse: 

No, they are considered Sciences Po Master’s programmes. Therefore, when applying to one of them, you may also select a dual degree programme as a first choice.

Question: 
I am applying through the international procedure/I am applying to a one-year Master’s programme: Do I have a better chance of being admitted if I apply early?
Réponse: 

No, but the earlier you apply, the shorter our response time will be.

Question: 
I have applied to both a dual degree programme and a Master’s programme. My application has been rejected for one of them. What are my chances for the other one?
Réponse: 

It is common for applicants to be selected for the Master's programme and rejected for the dual degree. However, generally speaking, if your application is rejected for a Master's programme, it is very unlikely that it will be selected for a dual degree, since Sciences Po's selection criteria are the same in both cases. We publish our Admissions Report on our website every year, you can read it for more details.

Question: 
Does one of your Master's programmes offer higher chances of admission?
Réponse: 

No. The number of applications to each programme varies every year, but we hold to our criteria of excellence and the standards remain high for all Master’s programmes. 

Question: 
What is an apprenticeship master's programme?
Réponse: 

Sciences Po offers the possibility of an apprenticeship within certain Master's programmes.

During their apprenticeship, students receive a salary from their company. They are exempt from tuition fees, which are paid by the company. The work-study schedule is specific to each Master's programme.

Question: 
Can I apply for both a master's programme and a dual degree programme?
Réponse: 

Yes, you can apply for a master's programme (excluding one-year programmes) and a dual degree programme at the same time.

The dual degree programme will be automatically considered as a first choice and the Master's programme as a second (but if admitted to both programmes, you will be able to choose in which you want to enroll). 

Sciences Po students should only submit an application if they wish to apply to a dual degree programme. Do not select any Master's programme as a second choice. You will be prompted to choose your Master's programme in March through your student platform at the invitation of the Academic Affairs office, as explained in several newsletters you will receive.

Please note: If you apply to a Master’s programme and a dual degree programme with different deadlines, you must submit your application by the earliest deadline.

Question: 
Can I apply for two master's programmes?
Réponse: 

No, you can apply only for one master's programme per academic year.

Question: 
Can I work full time during my studies in a one-year programme?
Réponse: 

No, the one-year master's programmes are full-time courses.

Question: 
Is it possible to apply to two different one-year master’s programmes at the same time?
Réponse: 

No, you can only select one one-year master’s programme.

Question: 
May I apply to both a dual degree programme and a one-year Master's programme?
Réponse: 

No, you may not. You have to choose between applying to an initial education programme (Master and/or dual degree) or applying to a one-year Master's programme. These are 2 different courses, one is a state-registered degree, the other is a university diploma (the one-year Master's programme).

Question: 
What is a Partnership Programme?
Réponse: 

They are unique programmes in partnership with an affiliated university characterized by specific enrolment requirements and diplomas. These programmes are open to Sciences Po students and certain partner universities students. Please review the eligibility criteria and the specificities of each programme.

In order to apply to any of these programmes, you must select the  “Partnership Programme” procedure in the online application to view the accurate list of programmes available. 

Question: 
Can I apply for two dual degree programmes?
Réponse: 

No. You cannot apply for two dual degree programmes. You can however apply for a dual degree programme and a two-year graduate programme. In which case your first choice must be the dual degree with the graduate programme as your second. If deadlines for these two programmes differ, you must consider the first to come to term.
