Double degree structure

DD students will spend 1 year at LSM and one year at VSE. Although programmes are subject to change, you can check examples here below:


Master's Thesis

Students enrolled in a double degree LSM/VSE are required to write a joint Master's thesis. Therefore the students will have to found two professors: one at LSM and one at VSE. One will be the main supervisor and the other one the reader.
Students usually start their work for the Master's thesis already during the first year. The Master's thesis will be written in English. A mandatory oral defense will take place in front of at least the two professors (by skype if needed).

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees are paid at the "home" university, for the entire duration of the studies. Administrative fees might be required at the "host" university.
