The Double Degree for Students from the University of Adelaide

Program Outline

Students of the M.Sc. Economics from the University of Adelaide taking part in the double degree program with the University of Tübingen will spent their first two semesters at the University of Adelaide completing their honours degree.

After having completed their honours degree in Economics at the University of Adelaide, students will undertake two semesters of study at the University of Tübingen. The courses students have taken at the University of Adelaide will count towards their M.Sc. in Economics at the University of Tübingen, each earning the students 9 ECTS credits towards their M.Sc. degree at the University of Tübingen.

Students will need to take one course out of Specialization or Elective studies and one Master Seminar in their first semester at the University of Tübingen. An additional course may be taken, however, it will not be counted into the final degree.

In the second semester at the University of Tübingen, students will research and write their Master Thesis. Upon the successful completion of all courses and the Master Thesis, the student has concluded the double degree program and will be awarded the M.Sc. in Economics at the University of Tübingen.
