Questions and answers

What is a double degree?
The Department of Political Science at University of Gothenburg cooperates with the Department of Politics and Public Administration at University of Konstanz. Through this cooperation we are able to give students the opportunity to study one year in Sweden and one in Germany. After completing these two years you get one master’s degree from each university.

How many students are accepted to the double degree option each year?
We select two students to each of our three master’s programmes. The same amount of students are selected from Konstanz. That makes a total of twelve students, six from Sweden and six from Germany.

How is the selection made?
The selection is based on the same grounds as for the corresponding master’s programme. Please read more at these links:
MA in Political Science, MA in European Studies, MA in International Administration and Global Governance.

How do I apply for the double degree option?
Before January 15 you apply for the double degree option of a master’s programme at universityadmissions.se or antagning.se. You apply the same way you apply for a regular education. Do not forget to submit your CV and Statement of Intent.

If you only are interested in the option that gives you the opportunity to study half your education in Germany and half in Sweden you should only apply for the programme with the double degree option. However, if you are interested in the programme even if you get to study both years in Sweden, you must also apply for the regular option. Note that they have different application codes, and you need to rank them.

If you are one of the selected students that gets to go to Konstanz, we ask you to confirm your spot as soon as possible. We also ask you to contact our partner in Konstanz as soon as possible. This is because they need to get started with organising your accommodation. You can find all the information about what to send where here.

If I don't get admitted to the double degree option, will I then automaticly get selected to the regular programme in Gothenburg?
No, you have to apply to both options (with and without double degree) if you are interested in both. Note that they have different application codes, and you need to rank them.
