Double and Joint Degrees in Europe: Possibilities and new perspectives

Fernández, Ana María
Year of Publication: 

Before the Bologna process, one of the added values of students international mobility was the opportunity to obtain two degrees simultaneously: at the university of origin and at the host university. After Bologna, double degrees take on new meaning, particularly because of the interaction between undergraduate and master courses. On the other hand, the European Union is promoting double degrees, through the Erasmus Mundus programme, mostly in master's and PhD programmes. In this presentation we will deal with different types of double and joint degrees within the European scope, and we will analyze their future possibilities. Likewise, we will discuss the most common problems related to the management of this type of mobilities, which are undoubtedly an attracting element for non-EU students. The final part will deal with the incorporation of non European partners, already experienced in USA, Latin America and China. Different perspectives, as well as different problems and solutions are presented.
