1. Outline of the program

This Double Degree Program (DDP) is a program aimed at providing students with the opportunity to obtain two Master’s degrees simultaneously (each granted by one institution), after accomplishing study and research at both institutions and successfully fulfilling the requirements of each institution. Master’s research projects will be conducted at the two institutions under the supervision of an academic advisor from each institution.

The total period of the DDP for each student is at least 3 academic years (in general 6 semesters), where at least one academic year (2 semesters) is allocated to studies in the partner institutions. Each student must study at the sending institution for at least 1 semester (the first home period) at the beginning of the DDP. Subsequently, the student enrolls in the receiving institution as a regular student and studies there for at least two semesters to fulfill conditions for acquiring his/her degree in the receiving institution (the exchange period). Then the student returns to the sending institution and studies there to fulfill conditions for acquiring his/her degree for 2-4 semesters (the second home period). When the conditions for acquiring degrees at both institutions are fulfilled, the DDP of the student is completed and hence one Master’s degree is granted to the student by each institution.
