- Rund ums Studium
If you would like to study in Lower Saxony but are not (yet) comfortable with the idea of doing a complete study programme in German, an international study programme may be an excellent alternative. Here, the study programme is tailored to the needs of international students, and often the majority of the courses are taught in English. And to boost your German language skills as well, German courses usually complete these study programmes. In Lower Saxony there are currently about 80 English-taught study programmes.
These programmes are a special bilateral form of international study programmes, in which you study at universities in at least two different countries. Usually, you can earn a Master's degree or a PhD in these programmes. There are two types of degrees:
For a joint degree, you also study at two or more universities, but at the end of your studies, you will receive one joint degree from all universities involved.
For a double degree, you study at two universities or more. At the end of your studies, you will receive a separate degree from each university.
The easiest way to participate in an international study programme with a double degree is to apply for the Erasmus Mundus Programme. Find further information and an overview of the available study programmes here.
