Admission to a graduate dual degree programme
Admissions for the 2024 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 one year at the partner institution, with a Master's degree awarded by each university.
The prestige of these degrees and the language skills acquired, together with the experience of student life in two different countries, are all assets that today's recruiters value highly.

Dual Degree Admissions
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 between Sciences Po and the partner institution.
Several criteria are taken into account during the selection process.
How to apply
The application file to be completed depends on the applicant's previous academic career (see below).
- You cannot apply to two dual degree programmes. You can however apply to a dual degree programme and a Master programme. In this case, you must position the dual degree programme as your first choice. 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 you apply to a Master’s programme and a dual degree programme with different deadlines, you must submit your application by the earliest deadline.
- Applications to dual degree programmes will only be considered if they include the required language test scores by the deadline of the selected programme.
- As our platform does not automatically invalidate incomplete files, it is your responsibility to submit an application that includes all required documents (including references and proof of language proficiency).
- 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.
