Dual Degree Studies and Parallel Studies

Dual Degree Studies (Doppelstudium)

If you are already enrolled in a degree program at the University of Potsdam, you may simultaneously enroll in a second degree program if you intend to earn a degree in both subjects.

Degree programs with limited admission require an admission notification. A dual degree can be completed in two degree programs with limited admission only if:

  • you have been admitted to both degree programs
  • your enrollment does not prevent other applicants who are seeking a first degree program from enrolling
  • the dual degree program in the selected combination of subjects is a requirement for the professional degree

Information on the procedure can be obtained from the Office of Student Affairs.

Parallel Studies (Parallelstudium)

If you are already enrolled at another university in the Federal Republic of Germany and would like to simultaneously earn an additional degree at the University of Potsdam, you need to apply for a parallel degree program.

Enrollment in a parallel degree program can only be granted if you intend to earn a degree in both subjects. When seeking to study a combination in which one degree program is without admission limits and the second degree program has limited admission, an admission notification is required for the latter. Parallel studies in two subjects with admission limits may only be granted upon review of a separate and justified petition if:

  • you have been admitted to both degree programs
  • your enrollment does not prevent other applicants who are seeking a first degree program from enrolling
  • the parallel degree program in the selected combination of subjects is a requirement for the professional degree

Information on the procedure can be obtained from the Office of Student Affairs.
