Double Degrees (DD) are part of the Bologna Process towards a harmonised European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
BBI Luxembourg & SAVONIA agreed to collaborate further on from the original “bilateral agreement” established in 2005, based on students and professors exchange. With the objective to develop further international opportunities for their students and to strengthen the international ties between them, the two institutions have entered into an agreement for the establishment of a Double Degree for the Bachelor curriculum, linked with the ERASMUS + programme for the benefit of the students.
This agreement permits students of each university to follow one year in one of the partner’s institution, and upon the successful fulfilment of the requested conditions the opportunity of receiving by a DD both the academic degree of the home institution and the legal effects of the corresponding academic degree of the partner institution.
BBI students following this programme will obtain their double bachelor degree with 4 years of studies: 3 years at BBI Luxembourg and 1 year at Savonia.
