Franco-British dual degree in social and political sciences

Established in 2002, combining the rigour and systematic approach of the French system with the sort of robust debate and relentless argument that is typical of the British system, this course fosters interdisciplinary work and critical, creative thinking.

This combined program in social and political sciences allows British and French students to earn a specialized Franco-British Sciences Po Lille diploma as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Kent.

The number of students accepted for this five-year program is determined each year according to the number of available placesApplicants whose main school leaving qualification is the standard French Baccalauréat or its equivalent – obtained at a French institution or abroad – must submit their application to Sciences Po Lille. All the other applicants must submit their application to Kent.

Those selected study together for the entirety of the program: the first and fourth year are spent at Sciences Po Lille while the second and third years are at the University of Kent.

Concerning the fifth year, students may study in Lille, the University of Kent (campus Canterbury or Brussels), another Sciences Po through mutualisation or at a partner university (according to their Master Specialty choice).

The Franco-British program allows students to receive degrees recognized in both countries, in two cultures and two different systems of higher education. This experience encourages students to be open-minded and develops their ability to adapt to new environments. This program also provides students the perfect opportunity to master two major languages.
