In cooperation with the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham, the School of Business and Economics at the University of Tübingen offers a brand-new double degree option for its M.Sc. Economics and M.Sc. International Economics students. Students participating in this double degree program spend their first year at the University of Nottingham and their second year at the University of Tübingen. They will graduate with both degrees, in Tübingen with the M.Sc. in Economics or M.Sc. in International Economics and in Nottingham with one of the listed degrees:
M.Sc. Economics and Econometrics
M.Sc. Economics and International Economics
M.Sc. Economics and Development Economics
M.Sc. Economics and Financial Economics
M.Sc. Behavioural Economics
For more information see the program outline.
If you wish to take part in this double degree program, you will need to select the double degree option with the University of Nottingham when applying for the M.Sc. in Economics or the M.Sc. in International Economics at the University of Tübingen. You are expected to give your reasons for doing the double degree in your letter of motivation. Please be aware of the fact that we can accept no more than five students for this double degree option. The selection process will be based on your academic merit as well as your personal motivation to take part in this program.
Students will not pay any tuition fees at the University of Tübingen at the moment; they will pay the administrative fees only. But the federal state of Baden-Wurttemberg decided to introduce tuition fees for students from outside the European Union for the winter term 2017/2018. The exact amount is not determined yet, but will probably be around 1.500 Euro per semester.
Students pay only 2/3 of the regular tuition fees at Nottingham. Please check the current Nottingham Tuition Fee website for current information. You can then calculate the amount; it is payable in three instalments, the first one of which has to be paid in the week of your arrival in Nottingham. You will receive detailed information upon arrival.
If you apply for Auslandsbafög -- see details here. A quite big amount of the tuition fees are taken care of. Auslandsbafög pays as much as 4,600€ in tuition fees.
Please note! All information in this program is preliminary and changes are possible.
