Double Degree students spend their third and fourth semester abroad and are registered at the partner university. Credits gained at the partner university will be approved by the home institution and count towards the Master degree. Courses can be selected according to the students’ chosen major. A minimum of 30 ECTS in addition to the Master thesis and oral exam (18 + 3 ECTS) must be achieved during the study abroad.
The Master thesis is usually written during the fourth semester under co-supervision of professors from both universities.
