Last Update: 
11 October 2019

A dual BA programme is being offered jointly by Sciences Po and Freie Universität Berlin. Admission decisions will be made collaboratively by both institutions.

This prestigious and selective programme consists of two years in France at Sciences Po's European campus at Nancy and two years in Berlin at the Otto-Suhr-Institut of Freie Universität Berlin, leading to a dual Bachelor degree.

This competitive programme offers complementary studies in the unique multidisciplinary Sciences Po context and a specialisation in political science at the Otto-Suhr-Institut of Freie Universität Berlin.

Language requirements

Language requirements are:

  • French B2
  • German B2
  • English B1


In the application form, the dual degree programme will automatically be requested as the first program choice. Please note that there is a wide range of dual degree programmes from which to choose. You may indicate the Sciences Po dual degree programme (the campus at Nancy) with Freie Universität Berlin as first choice, and the European Programme at the campus in Nancy, as the second choice.

Please note:

The admission interview for the international admissions procedure will be undertaken jointly by Sciences Po and Freie Universität Berlin. Candidates must, therefore, choose a specific interview session for the dual degree program as the first-choice session in the application dossier.

The applicant’s letter of motivation should specifically target the dual diploma programme as well as the two co-sponsoring institutions.

The admission dossier will be reviewed by both partnering institutions, so no additional steps are required for Freie Universität Berlin.

All documents may be prepared in French, in German or in English.


At the conclusion of their programme of study candidates will earn the Sciences Po's Bachelor degree as well as Freie Universität Berlin's Bachelor Politikwissenschaft Sciences sociales.

Like other Sciences Po students new degree-holders will then be able to matriculate for the Sciences Po Master's programme of their choice in compliance with the relevant selection criteria.
