Degree in Political Sciences and Administration with RANEPA

What is it?

An international program of simultaneous studies that allows its participants to obtain a degree from two educational institutions located in different countries.

In this program participate the the Faculty of Law of the Universitat de València and the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) with its headquarter in Moscow (Russia).

Students in the dual degree programme get two official degrees:

a) The Degree "State and Municipal Management", specialization "Politics and Law" (Russian-Spanish programme with advanced study of foreign languages) by RANEPA, with 240 ECTS (4 years).

 b) The Degree in Political Sciences and Administration of the Universitat de València, with 240 ECTS (4 years).

To whom it is addressed?

Students who are admitted for pre-enrolment in the Degree in Political Science and Public Administration to study in 2020/2021.

How long it is and how it works?

Once enrolled for the degree:

  1. They must pass the first and second year of Political Science studies at the Universitat de València (a minimum of 120 ECTS credits).
  2. The third and fourth year will be taken at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (Other 120 credits ECTS).

IN TOTAL 240 ECTS in 4 years (2 in València + 2 in Moscow)

The languages of the program will be Spanish in UV and English in RANEPA.  The students are committed to take Russian classes at UV during the first two years in València.

The second promotion of the degree (2020-21) will move there in the academic year 2022-23 (from September 2022).

NOTE:  The program includes its own study plan that supposes the alteration in the sequence of some subjects related to the degree in Political Science and Public Administration.

How many students are admitted to the program?

The number of exchange students of this double degree will be 3 students per year.

How the preselection and registration is carried out?

  1. The access will be determined by the access mark to each degree.
  2. Those who are able to show their knowledge on English will have priority.

Minimum language requirement: the equivalent to the B-2 level in English (appreciation: according to the rulings of the Universitat de València regarding the accreditation of foreign languages).

If there are empty places: those students without the language requirement could be chosen; if so, the students compromise themselves to accredit this level before the second-year registering.


The Spanish students must be registered in the Universitat de València for the four years that the programme lasts, once the fees linked to the degree have been paid.  They will not have to pay the fees at the host university except for the minimum fees which usually every exchange student must pay, if necessary. These fees will be targeted to a scholar insurance or to the emission of the university card.

Which commitments undertake the students?

  1. The students who participate in the programme shall comply the academic rulings, so that they are subjected to the disciplinary regime and to the assessment system of the host institution.
  2. Students must have an insurance to cover medical services and repatriation, as well as the civil responsibility, if necessary.
  3. If they decide not to continue with the programme before the stay is completed, the students will be included in the degree in Political Sciences and Public Administration of the Universitat de València and they will not receive any appreciation for their studies in an international degree.
