Graduate studies: How to apply
There are several admissions procedures to choose from and one key condition: you must be ready to commit yourself to a challenging academic endeavour
Sciences Po offers different types of admission in order to build a community of students from all horizons. This multicultural experience is highly sought after by recruiters.
Which procedure is right for me?
- If you have pursued a higher education degree in France, you must apply through the French procedure (fr).
- If you have gained a university degree from a foreign higher education institution, you must apply through the international procedure.
- If you would like to pursue a dual-degree programme, the admissions procedure will depend on your previous studies. Refer to admissions to dual-degree programmes for more information.
What kinds of qualities does Sciences Po look for in an international applicant?
Sciences Po recruits applicants who excel academically and beyond. We want our Master’s degree students to share our educational vision, and our commitment to scholarship and research. We therefore seek out curious and open-minded individuals, committed and responsible students. An enthusiasm for Sciences Po’s intellectual project, and the ability to present clear and relevant academic and professional goals, are essential.
