Joint and Double Degree Programmes

The Programmes

A Joint Degree Programme is a Master’s or Doctoral Programme that is developed together by various universities. At the end of your programme, both universities award a commonly recognized degree.

The Double Degree Programme is a programme offered at international universities, whereby the student pursues a parallel programme at 2 academic institutions and is awarded 2 academic degrees. The student is generally enrolled at a university in a degree programme and, during the course of this programme, completes a second degree programme in the same or a similar subject at another university. The second degree is usually completed during a semester abroad at a partner university. Both universities mutually recognize the coursework, and each award an academic degree.
