Joint Degree Programmes
Jointly Accredited Degree Programmes are founded on cooperation between two or more institutions participating in a Joint Degree Programme. However, the studies culminate in one or more degrees being jointly awarded and all the cooperating institutions are responsible for the entire programme, not merely for distinct portions. Such degree programmes are always newly accredited and the participating institutions are bound by a Cooperation Agreement (see the section Download).
MU distinguishes between:
- Double or Multiple Degree, culminating in one or more nationally recognized diplomas, formally issued by two or more institutions participating in a joint cooperative programme, and
- Joint Degree, where one joint diploma is issued by at least a pair of institutions offering a joint programme.
Within the framework of institutional accreditation at MU, joint degree programmes in cooperation with foreign universities can be approved not only as new study programmes but also as a new curriculum in existing programmes. For more information, please refer to the Methodological Sheet for Preparation of Degree Programmes in Cooperation with a Foreign University, which was developed by the Department for Quality in cooperation with the MU Centre for International Cooperation.
