Double and joint degree

The purpose of a third-cycle educational collaboration that lead to a double degree or a joint degree is to increase internationalisation, foster the prerequisites for working in an international labour market and facilitate a broader skills base and collaborative gains for the universities.

Internal university process, recommendations and other useful information can be found in the document Guidelines for dual and joint degree at the graduate level.

A third-cycle educational collaboration that leads to a double or joint degree is created in stages. The first stage (Stage 1 agreement) describes the overall prerequisites for collaboration between the higher learning institutions. This agreement is created at the university level

The second stage (Stage 2 agreement) describes the programme-specific requirements of the collaboration and is created at the department level.

The third and final Stage (Stage 3 agreemetn) concerns the specific details for each individual doctoral student, in addition to the Individual Study Plan (ISP). The agreement is to be signed by the two responsible departments and the doctoral student.
