what is a double degree?

A Double Degree programme is an opportunity to get two degrees from different institutions in a shorter amount of time. Students have to spend one year abroad at the partner university and prepare their thesis with mentors from both universities. Credits passed at the partner university will be recogniyed at FRI. Therefore, students will obtain two diplomas from the two insitutions.
