This is a challenging and rewarding bi-lingual and bi-national programme offered in partnership with the Institut d'Etudes Politiques (IEP) de Lille, one of France’s most prestigious grandes écoles. Established in 2002, it was the first programme of its kind offered in the UK. You will spend your first and fourth years in Lille and the second and third in Canterbury. This programme is ideal for those students wishing to study politics and international relations within a broader social science context in the UK and France, and to obtain a degree recognised in both educational systems. You will experience academic and personal life in two different institutional, national and linguistic environments and develop knowledge and understanding of their respective cultures and societies. The programme aims to equip students with the ability to place political questions, both domestic and international, at the centre of their social-scientific analysis.
