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.

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.

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 dual degree with the graduate programme as your second. (do not worry, if granted admission to both, you will be able to choose). If deadlines for these two programmes differ, you must respect the first to come to term.
  • No conditional offers are provided for the dual degree programmes. Dual degree programmes require language test results for the application to be processed.
  • The joint selection committees for dual degree programmes are held 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 for these programmes.
  • Campus France does not grant the Eiffel scholarship to dual degree programme students (except for Journalism Sciences Po/Columbia university and first year students of the dual degree Sciences Po/PSIA-Sorbonne Université : Sciences et politiques de l'environnement).
