A Double Degree is a programme of study that gives master students the possibility to graduate with two degrees – one in International Relations or European Studies 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 master’s degree programme at both partner institutions, the UL-FDV or the UNI PASSAU.
The program is based on mutual recognition of credit points and a master thesis, which gives students the opportunity to complete both studies faster.
Participating master’s students spend their first year at the UL-FDV, completing 60 ECTS, and obligatory mobility at the UNI PASSAU in the 3rd semester, completing 30 ECTS on the module Governance and Public Policy. Students may decide to write the master’s thesis at the UNI PASSAU or at the UL-FDV, where they spend the 4th semester and acquire 30 ECTS. In the second 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.
