Students on this dual degree will benefit from the reputation and teaching specialisms of both UCL and Sciences Po in France. The programme offers specialisation in a humanities or social science subject, combined with a broad base in history, law, politics and philosophy, and fluency in a European language.

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 15 or 30 credits, adding up to a total of 120 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 30-credit module is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

You will undertake language study throughout the programme, selecting one language on which to concentrate. The European languages available are French, German, Italian and Spanish. You will spend the first two years of study at Sciences P- at one of the following five campuses: Paris, Poitiers, Menton, Nancy and Dijon.

Modules fall into three groupings: common core, language and social science electives. The European common core involves working in a multidisciplinary environment, gaining insights into a range of academic disciplines and engaging critically with competing analytical perspectives.

In the last two years at UCL you may specialise in any of these major subjects: Economics, History, International Relations, Law, Philosophy and Politics. If you intend to specialise in Economics, Law or History while at UCL you must take optional modules in the relevant discipline at Sciences Po.
