Double Degree Programme

Would you like to obtain a second international Bachelor’s degree? The Double Degree Programme at the HWR Berlin allows you to do just that – at a partner university in only two semesters.

What is the Double Degree Programme?

It is possible to acquire a second international degree simultaneously with a Bachelor of Arts degree from HWR Berlin. You will spend two semesters at a partner university and follow a predefined course plan comprising elective and compulsory courses.

  • Standard period of study: 8 semesters (incl. one semester international internship)

Double Degree Programme basic regulations

After successful completion of the first four semesters (120 ECTS) at HWR Berlin, the fifth and sixth semesters are spent studying at a partner university. The semesters completed abroad are a component of Part Two of study at HWR Berlin.

Applications for the Double Degree Programme are, as a rule, submitted in the third semester through the International Office.

Students who started their studies at HWR Berlin in April should bring their internships forward to the fifth semester and complete their studies abroad in the sixth and seventh semesters.

  • Language of instruction while studying abroad: English or national language.
  • ECTS credit points: 240 in total, of which 60 must have been earned abroad.
  • Depending on the region (EU/non-EU), there are various funding opportunities (e.g. Erasmus+, Promos, BAföG)
  • Specific curricula and rules apply to each partner university.

My Erasmus exchange was a positive experience. At ESC Rennes, you can get to know incredibly great people from different countries, and learn a lot about intercultural communication, which is bound to benefit in later professional life.
