Joint and double degrees

Last changed: 31 August 2017

Preparing and planning educational cooperation intended to result in a joint degree is a complex process that often takes a long time.

Educational cooperation aiming at a joint degree must be regulated by a written agreement. Both the Higher Education Ordinance and SLU's own guidelines stipulate special requirements that must be fulfilled.
