Please note

Applications for the 2022 intake start next October. 

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 the other at the partner institution, with a degree awarded by each universities.

Which procedure applies to your situation?

Important information

  • You cannot apply for two dual degree programmes. You can however apply for a dual degree programme and a Master programme. In which case your first choice must be the dual degree with the graduate programme as your second. This is only a technical constraint which will not prevent you from choosing whichever programme you want to attend, should you be admitted to both programmes.
  • If deadlines for these two programmes differ, you must respect the first to come to term.  The Joint Master in Journalism and International Affairs and the Joint Master in Law and Finance are not considered as dual degrees.
  • No conditional offers are provided for the dual degree programmes. Dual degree programmes require language test results for the application to be processed.
  • Candidates are notified as to the outcome of their dual degree 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 for these programmes.
  • Campus France does not grant the Eiffel scholarship to dual degree programme students (except for specific programmes). Please check the Eiffel Scholarship webpage
