The University of Potsdam offers several courses of study in cooperation with international partner institutions. We make a distinction between joint degree and double degree programs.
A joint degree program is a course of study shared by two or more universities that requires a stay abroad. The student receives a shared degree certificate upon successful completion of the program.
A double degree program includes two separate courses of study carried out at cooperating universities. The student completes parts of the academic program at both universities, and these courses are credited at the other institution. At the end of a double degree program, both universities confer their own degree certificates.
