International Study Programmes

An international study programme is a master's or doctoral degree programme, jointly developed by different universities. All title-granting partner institutions recognize these degrees. As a Joint Degree graduate, you benefit from a degree that increases your chances on the international job market, not least through the intercultural experience of the integrated stay abroad.

Carefully selected academic mobility partners offer the opportunity to specialize in subjects, which might not be offered at your home university. In addition, you will improve your language skills and expertise.
