The INSA-Sciences Po Rennes double degree


An innovative double program of study

This program, the first of its kind in France, is designed to train high-level executives qualified to work in either engineering or governance. Thanks to skills in two different disciplines, students are prepared for the technical, political, economic and social aspects of the roles they will occupy.

How does it work? Students attend classes every day at both INSA Rennes and Sciences Po Rennes, which are connected by the underground metro system. Students are selected for the first year of the program based on an application submitted with a special request on Parcoursup, the French post-secondary pre-enrollment platform.
