International opportunities for students

What is the Double Degree?

It is a joint study program between two or more universities that allows you to obtain two or more diplomas that can be spent in their respective countries.
After a first part of studies at UniTrento, mobility abroad is foreseen at the partner university, from 1 to 4 semesters, depending on the agreements.
The double degree course is certainly more demanding but it will guarantee you double satisfaction and concrete results in the world of work!

What is the added value?

In Italy and abroad, a double degree is always an added value.
Not only the experts say it, you just have to browse through the vacancies to realize that companies and organizations are looking for international and open-minded profiles, able to work in multicultural teams and face ever new global challenges: these are the workers of the future.
The most frequent motivations that push our students to make this choice are:
- the need for greater educational diversification
- the desire to perfect a foreign language
- the desire to know a different country and culture
