Double Degree Programmes

TU Darmstadt has entered into double-degree agreements with different partner universities all over the world. These programmes offer qualified students the opportunity to get two degrees at the same time: the Bachelor of Science or the Master of Science at TU Darmstadt and the corresponding degree of the partner university. The recognition of academic achievements of the partner university is guaranteed from the start.

Participants complete a large part of their degree in a foreign country. The duration of studies is usually only prolonged slightly. After completing the Master’s degree at TU Darmstadt, both degree certificates – one from TU Darmstadt, one from the partner university – will be conferred to the student.

The following pages will provide you with information about our double-degree programmes. For general inquiries about double degrees, please contact the Unit for International Relations and Mobility.

Organisational Issues for TU Darmstadt Double-Degree Students

You are enrolled as a student at TU Darmstadt and would like to earn two internationally recognised degrees in a reasonable period of time? If you can answer this question with a “yes”, we are looking forward to receiving your application to one of our double-degree programmes.

The following pages will provide you with valuable information on the application process and the different countries. Please get in touch with the respective contact person if you have further questions.

You can earn your double degree at any partner university which has an agreement with your department. A more detailed list of all partner universities can be found on the webpage partner universities.

In order to apply to one of our double-degree programmes, you will have to meet the following requirements:

  • registered student at TU Darmstadt
  • good academic achievements
  • good language skills, since the lectures at most partner universities are taught in the respective national language (TU Darmstadt’s Language Resource Centre offers a great variety of language courses)
  • your department offers the double degree programme with the selected partner university
  • your department accepts your application

You may have to meet additional requirements depending on which country you want to go to. These requirements and specific pieces of information about the countries can be found by clicking on the following links.

The application process for a double degree begins after the registration at TU Darmstadt, usually in the third or fifth semester, depending on your degree programme and the partner university.

First, you need to enter your personal data into the form and then click on “Send” for us to receive your data. A print version (PDF) will then be generated, which you have to print out, complete, and submit to your departmental coordinator. The selection of the students is done by the department, which then forwards the documents of nominees and successors to the Unit for International Relations and Mobility. Your department will inform you whether you have been nominated or not.

Start and duration of the double-degree programme depends on the partner university. Detailed information about the study progress can be found in the section “Specific Information and Requirements according to Countries”. Participating in the double-degree programme means that the duration of your studies will be slightly longer than the one of a normal degree.

  • BaföG for studies abroad

Further funding opportunities can be found in the funding section and on our other pages.
