In general, students have to fulfill study requirements of both master programs. The first and fourth semester take place at the home university, while the second and third semester take place at the host university.
DMP participants can expect opportunities for active communications with DMP participants from the other University throughout the program. Participants from Tohoku University will spend two semesters studying together with participants from Paderborn University who have been nominated in the previous semester (Green arrows in the graphic at the bottom of this page). Also, participants from Tohoku University will spend two semesters with the “next” generation from Paderborn University (Red arrows in the graphic at the bottom of this page).
Study achievements that need to be completed abroad will be agreed upon in advance with the home university (learning agreement). In the case where these achievements correspond to the respective study program, they will be credited upon return.
