Joint Programmes: International Study Programmes
You’ve surely have noticed that internationalization and an active role within the European Higher Education Area are two principal targets of the educational policy of the University of Graz. Since 2007 there has been a steadily growing number of joint programmes which offer a joint or double degree. The University of Graz is eager to offer more and more high quality programmes, in which the international mobility plays a fundamental role.
A Joint Degree is a single diploma issued by at least two institutions while a Double Degree consists of two national diplomas issued by two institutions in conjunction. In any case, the graduates will have the right to carry one academic degree.
On each individual website of our joint programmes you will find a detailed application procedure. You either have to apply online or send your application in a written form.
Generally, you need to choose one partner university of the consortium as your entrance university (university of enrolment). The entrance university is the institution which you apply to and where you get enrolled as a regular student.
Yes. Each joint programme has its own application period which you have to observe. Applications sent after the deadline will not be considered. Application deadlines vary from programme to programme so please consult the individual websites.
