Would you like to gain experience abroad during your studies and simultaneously acquire an additional bachelor's or master's degree? With the double degree programs of TH Köln that is entirely possible in some programs. It is worth taking a look, maybe your degree program is included.

What are double degree programs?

Double degree programs offer students at TH Köln the unique opportunity to study at an established partner university and to acquire a second degree there. The courses are coordinated for both universities and are mutually credited. They therefore do not represent separate courses, but rather link the individual courses of the respective partner universities with one another.

The duration of stay in a double degree program is usually at least 2 semesters for Bachelor programs and at least 1 semester for Master programs. Through the stay at the partner university, you will experience a different teaching and learning culture in an academic environment as well as deeper insights into another country, its language and its culture. You will benefit from these experiences for a lifetime, both personally and professionally.

What is the difference between a double degree program and a joint degree program?

When participating in a double degree program, you will receive two degrees from two universities. With a joint degree program, however, you will receive a single degree from two or more universities.

At TH Köln there is the Joint Degree Program International Management and Intercultural Communication (Master's program) / GlobalMBA, offered in cooperation with the partner countries China, Poland and the USA.
