Information for Incoming Double and Joint Degree Students
As a participant of a Double or Joint Degree Program, studying abroad is an integral part of your study program and you spend half of your degree program at the University of Mannheim.
In addition to the degree of your home institution, you will also receive a degree at the University of Mannheim. Double and Joint Degrees are offered in certain study programs and with selected partner universities.
With a double degree program, you will receive, as the name suggests, two degrees, one from your home institution and one from the University of Mannheim.
In the case of a joint degree, you will receive a joint degree certificate from both universities. A joint degree is a combined degree program of the cooperating universities with a common set of study regulations.
All double and joint degree students study at the University of Mannheim as part of a double degree program or a cooperation of the respective home institution and the University of Mannheim. Please contact the International Office of your home institution for information on the application process.
If your application for a placement has been successful at your home institution, you must be officially nominated for a study place at the University of Mannheim. As soon as we have received the nomination of your home institution, you will receive an e-mail containing the log-in data for our study abroad application portal as well as further important information and data on your program. Please complete the online application as soon as possible. Only after you have completed the application you will receive an official letter of admission. You will need the letter of admission for your visa application.
Deadlines for completing the online application:
At the University of Mannheim, courses are taught in English and German. Students thus need at least German or English level B2 (in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Students do not have to prove their language proficiency by submitting any language certificates. We trust that our partner universities select students with sufficient English or German language proficiency.
