Double Degree Undergraduate Programs in International Relations and Governance and Public Policy – Staatswissenschaften (University of Passau)

A Double Degree is a programme of study that gives students the possibility to graduate with two degrees – one in International Relations from the University of Ljubljana at the Faculty of Social Sciences (UL-FDV) and another in Governance and Public Policy – Staatswissenschaften  from the University of Passau (UNI PASSAU).

The Double Degree programme is only available for students enrolled in a relevant undergraduate programme at both partner institutions, the UL-FDV or the UNI PASSAU.

The program is based on mutual recognition of credit points and a diploma thesis, which gives students the opportunity to complete both studies faster.

Participating students spend their first two years at the undergraduate study at the UL-FDV, completing 120 ECTS, 60 credit points are obtained in the 3rd year of study at the UNI PASSAU. In the third year, students enrol to the UNI PASSAU, but remain enrolled also at the UL-FDV.

Students, who meet the entry and graduation requirements as well as learning outcomes of both programmes and have spent the required mobility period at the UNI PASSAU, are eligible for diploma awards at both partner institutions.
