The Affaires Internationales programme from London School of Economics and Political Science is based on reciprocal recognition of both curriculum and evaluation in the partner university, and offers a top-level education in international affairs and international relations or international political economy. It is designed primarily for those who intend to practise negotiation in government, international institutions and business, as well as those with a general interest in international relations and international political economy.
The double degree takes place over the course of two full academic years, with the first year in Paris and the second in London. At Sciences Po, you choose between three specialisations, International Security, International Economic Policy and International Public Management.
At LSE, you will have a choice between taking the MSc International Relations and the MSc International Political Economy. At the end of two years of successful study you will be awarded either a Master’s in International Security, in International Economic Policy or in International Public Management from Sciences Po and either MSc International Relations or MSc International Political Economy from LSE.
Most of our former MSc students go on to work in government, international organisations, financial institutions, journalism and corporations, but some continue on to research degrees and the academic profession.
The first year is spent at Sciences Po. You join the Paris School of International Affairs and study for one of the following programmes:
- Master’s in International Security
- Master's in International Economic Policy
- Master's in International Public Management.
The double degree has specific requirements during the first year, including a compulsory joint seminar which you are required to attend irrespective of the master’s degree you are enrolled in. You must pass the first year at Sciences Po to be permitted to proceed to LSE.
