Integrated International Study Programmes with Double Degree

These programmes are a special bilateral form of international study programmes, in which you study at universities in at least two different countries. Usually, you can earn a Master's degree or a PhD in these programmes. There are two types of degrees:

Joint Degree

For a joint degree, you also study at two or more universities, but at the end of your studies, you will receive one joint degree from all universities involved.

Double Degree

For a double degree, you study at two universities or more. At the end of your studies, you will receive a separate degree from each university.

The easiest way to participate in an international study programme with a double degree is to apply for the Erasmus Mundus Programme. Find further information and an overview of the available study programmes here.
