Admission to a graduate dual degree programme
Admissions for the 2020 intake are open.
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 is granted on the basis of the evaluation of the application form and the required documents. The final decision is taken by a joint committee Sciences Po/partner institution.
