Graduate Admissions: Which procedure applies to your situation?

Last Update: 
29 August 2022

In order to recruit an increased diversity of students and thereby reinforce the relevance and quality of its training, Sciences Po has implemented several admission procedures for Master's and dual degree programmes, which differ according to the applicant's situation

It is your responsibility to determine which procedure matches your situation before submitting your application.

Below are the broad outlines to get you started. Be sure to check the eligibility criteria for each procedure to confirm which one is right for you.

It is not possible to apply for a Master's degree through several procedures: if you are in a Franco-foreign programme (awarding both a French and a foreign degree) and the majority of your transcripts have a French grade, then choose the French procedure.

Domestic Graduate Admissions Procedure

You can apply through this procedure if you have already obtained, or will obtain at the end of the current academic year, a French undergraduate degree or 180 ECTS credits from an institution in France or abroad.

Check the eligibility criteria for our domestic procedure (FR).

International graduate admissions procedure

The international graduate admissions procedure is open to applicants who have obtained, or will obtain by the end of the current academic year, a non-French Bachelor’s degree (or 180 ECTS credits) from an institution located in France or abroad. 

Check the eligibility criteria for our international procedure.

Please visit our page dedicated to the international procedure.

Applying to a dual degree programme

Applicants to a dual degree programme must go through the procedure (domestic or international) for which they are eligible.

Sciences Po undergraduate students willing to apply to a dual degree programme must do so through the domestic admissions procedure, regardless of their educational background prior to Sciences Po.
