The Programme at a Glance

We are working with the highly regarded independent German University of Witten/ Herdecke to offer students the opportunity to earn a double degree in England and Germany. This takes the form of two separate degrees, one from each university. One year is studied in Buckingham and one in Witten.

For Buckingham students this means completing your first year here and then going to Witten for your second year to to complete a further year of study there. The courses completed in the University of Witten/Herdecke will be accredited by University of Witten/Herdecke, leading to their award of a second degree. For your second year you will pay the University of Witten/ Herdecke directly, at the rates set out on their website and in their brochure. You will also need to organise expenses such as accommodation, travel, visa etc.
