Double Master

Rules Board of Examiners / OER

Some students want to combine two UT Master studies. Plans for two Master's programmes require the approval of both Boards of Examiners. Such a combined programme usually consists of 90 EC subjects, an extended master's assignment and an internship. The final assignment must have the characteristics of both programmes. So, a double master is a three-year (180 EC) programme that meets the requirements of both master's programmes.

 Are you interested in a second master? Then please contact the study advisor ( or make an appointment ( to discuss your options, and to make sure you meet the requirements before submitting your application to the BME Examination Board.
