Admissions process

International admissions

Selection to the programme is based partly on academic achievement. The application file will be processed for the dual BA programme only, and not for any other programmes.

Candidates deemed admissible will be contacted for an interview with representatives from Sciences Po and Berkeley.

If, in addition to this programme, you wish to apply to the Sciences Po general degree programme, you must submit your application via the Sciences Po International Undergraduate Admissions Procedure.

Applicants completing a French Baccalauréat in France

Candidates who apply both to the Dual BA with Berkeley and a Sciences Po undergraduate programme may be invited to two different interviews.


At the conclusion of their programme of study, candidates will receive a Sciences Po Bachelor’s degree in the Social Sciences and Humanities and a Berkeley Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in one of the approved majors of the Berkeley College of Letters and Science.

All graduates of the programme will be guaranteed admission into one of Sciences Po’s Master’s programmes.
