Study politics and international relations within a broader social science context in the UK and France. This challenging but rewarding bi-lingual and bi-national programme is offered in partnership with the Institut d'Etudes Politiques (IEP) de Lille, one of France’s most prestigious grandes écoles.
You spend your first and fourth years of study on the Science Po Lille campus, where teaching is in French, and your second and third years at Kent.
After four years, successful students gain their BA degree from the University of Kent and go on to complete a fifth year of study, normally at Lille or one of their partner institutions, to graduate with a Sciences Po diplôme.
You learn to explore the challenges facing the world, utilising the different concepts and approaches of political theory. You benefit from the expertise of staff who have advised governments and conducted conflict mediation exercises, deepening your understanding, and developing solutions to a range of issues, from terrorism to the impact of the pandemic on politics, and political polarisation. Your time spent studying at Lille develops your proficiency in French and offers an exceptional insight into European political thought.
