Double degrees

The Double Degrees programme allows students to gain two qualifications: one from their own university and one from an overseas partner university.

With the aim of offering its students a scientific and cultural experience of high level and the opportunity to live in a country other than the country of origin, Milano-Bicocca promotes bilateral agreements in order to set up double degree programmes. The level and the period of study vary upon agreement. 

Provided that both institutions' academic requirements have been met, participants will be receiving a graduate degree both from Milano-Bicocca and the foreign institution.

EU Double Degrees

Students that study on a Double Degree programme which involves them visiting an EU university are in effect Erasmus students. They will be assessed as Erasmus students, receive the ER grant and must follow the rules set for Erasmus students, part of which means filling out a Learning Agreement.
