Study a double degree
From the summer semester 2024, requests to study a double or multiple degree (Doppel-/ Mehrfachstudium) at the University of Augsburg must be made through the VIBS application portal.
Please log in to your student account and add an application for your desired degree programme. You may need to change your role to “student” using the tab in the upper right-hand corner. During the online enrolment select that you want to request to study a double or multiple degree. Once you have completed the online enrolment, please submit the computer-generated pdf request to study a double degree to the Register’s Office. Please note the deadline in your letter of admission or, if applicable, the enrolment deadline for the relevant semester and enclose the letter of admission or the confirmation for your desired degree programme with the request to study a double degree.
Please note: It is not possible to add a teaching-related bachelor’s degree programme (e.g., Bachelor of Education), or an extension subject taken as part of an education degree, via the online application. In this case, please use the form provided below.
If your desired degree programme is not available to select in VIBS, please contact the Registrar’s Office: email@example.com.
Please note: If you would like to discontinue a degree programme in which you are already studying, please request to change degree programme, entering the degree programme that you want to change from in VIBS.
It is in principle possible to study a double degree (Doppelstudium), but in order to enrol prior approval by the Registrar’s Office is required.
Applicants should be aware of the consequences of taking on an increased study load through a double degree. Being able to complete a double degree entails that both degree programmes can be attended without overlapping lecture times and that no delay is expected in the completion of the degree programmes. Since any disadvantages that may arise as a consequence of the increased study load are the student’s own responsibility, it is absolutely necessary to obtain detailed information from a subject-related study advisor (Fachstudienberatung) before beginning a double degree programme.
In accordance with Art. 87 Para. 1 Sentence 3 of the Bavarian Higher Education Innovation Act (Bayerisches Hochschulinnovationsgesetz, BayHIG), enrolment in two or more restricted admission degree programmes is only permitted if there is a special professional, scientific, or artistic interest for wanting to simultaneously study two restricted admission degree programmes.
- If the degree programme that is to be added to the existing degree programme is a restricted admission undergraduate degree programme or a master’s degree programme, the applicant must first
apply and receive admission to the programme. Similarly, it is only possible to add a degree programme/subjects that require an
aptitude assessment process or test after the aptitude assessment process or test has been passed. Requests to
study a double degree must be submitted within the timeframe specified in the letter of admission (Zulassungsbescheid).
- In order to be admitted to a double degree in open admission undergraduate degree programmes at the University of Augsburg at least 90 credit points must have already been achieved in the first degree programme. Therefore, please enclose a transcript of your grades which includes the number of credit points achieved to date (print this out from STUDIS) with your
request to study a double degree. If you lack the required credit points or if you are requesting to study a double degree before the fourth subject semester, the approval of two professors or
subject-related study advisors (Fachstudienberater) from the desired degree programmes is required.
The addition of a teaching-related bachelor’s degree programme (Bachelor of Education) can take place from the fifth semester of the corresponding teaching degree programme. It is a requirement of admission that at least 110 credit points can be credited to the teaching-related bachelor’s degree programme. In order to obtain relevant confirmation of this, the request to study a double degree must first be submitted to the examinations office. It will then be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office.

Please refer to the deadlines and dates page for information on the deadlines for requests to study a double degree.
If passing an aptitude assessment process or test is required for admission to an open admission degree programme, evidence of this must be provided at the time of enrolment. The relevant deadlines for registering for the aptitude assessment process or test must also be observed.
Enrolment at two different universities is also possible. First clarify with the other university how you should proceed. Then contact the University of Augsburg’s contact person: Frau Grob.
Requests to study a double degree must be submitted during the enrolment period to the Registrar’s Office (Studierendenkanzlei).
