     International Dual Bachelor’s Degrees
     Two years at Sciences Po + two years at the partner university
     Sciences Po offers dual Bachelor’s degrees with nine of the world’s leading universities, allowing students to study as fully-
     integrated members of two distinct academic cultures. Students from all around the world are recruited jointly by both
     institutions and form close-knit cohorts that are fully-integrated into the larger communities of their two universities.

     The first two years of all dual Bachelor’s programmes take place on one of Sciences Po’s campuses, where participants
     pursue the undergraduate curriculum and their choice of major. In years 3 and 4 at the partner university, students pursue a
     major offered by the host institution. Upon successful completion of the two curricula, students graduate with two
     Bachelor’s degrees, offering exceptional access to prestigious graduate studies or to entry into the job market.

Two programmes, one
unforgettable summer
The Summer School is an opportunity for
students from all over the world to discover
Sciences Po over the course of the summer.
Participants have the opportunity to
experience Sciences Po’s academic
environment and to become a part of its
international community.

It features two distinct programmes:
the University Programme, for university
students and graduates, and the Pre-College
Programme, for secondary school students.

The University Programme takes place on
the Paris campus in two separate, four-week
sessions during the months of June and July.
Through its intensive academic programme,
participants may delve into Sciences Po’s
core social sciences disciplines, study French
language and culture, or mix both subjects.

In 2017, the Pre-College Programme
introduced secondary students to student
life and academics at Sciences Po during
two weeks on its historic Reims campus.
Through challenging coursework that
combined social sciences and language
study, students got a taste of the
Sciences Po experience.
     A great variety of
     Students can find a broad array
     of cultural, sporting and other
     extra-curricular activities at
     Sciences Po. More than 300
     student associations, ranging
     from politics to philanthropy,
     provide opportunities for
     students to meet and share
     their passions.
