Dual Degree - King's College London

King's College London and Sciences Po have expanded their historic partnership by initiating a joint Graduate Programme in International Affairs. This programme allows participating students to obtain in two years of studies with a year each in Paris and London, both a Master's degree offered by the Paris School of International Affairs of Sciences Po (PSIA) and a Master's degree offered by one of a number of schools and departments within the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy at King's College London.

Spanning a wide range of disciplines and bilingual teaching (in French and English), this selective programme will allow students to customise their training at both universities, and also to benefit from the numerous opportunities, networks and services offered on both sides of the Channel.

Programme of studies

With this collaboration, King's and Sciences Po are inaugurating a new and flexible dual degree which bridges seven programmes on the Sciences Po side with over 30 degree programmes on the King's side. As a result, students can design their own path of study from the many potential degree combinations in international affairs in both Paris and London.

This dual degree program is aimed at graduate students planning careers in diplomacy and other areas of social and public policy at the national, European and global level. 

Year 1 at Sciences Po
