Double Mas­ter Pro­gram of Pader­born Uni­ver­sity and To­hoku Uni­ver­sity





In­form­a­tion for In­com­ings

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.

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.

With regard to the course selection students should be aware of the compatibility with both master programs. The table below provides an overview of the courses which have to be completed throughout each program. Further information concerning the course selection at Paderborn University is available on the webpages of the MSc IEM and the Module Catalogue, respectively.
