Double Degree Oslo - Hannover

The “Double Degree Oslo-Hannover” Programme (DDOH) is an educational programme in which students can obtain two degrees: LL.M. (Hannover), LL.M. (Oslo). The study phase at Leibniz Universität Hannover is followed by a study period at Universitetet i Oslo. It comprises an integrated and modularised curriculum, supplemented by a jointly-taught seminar and a final exam (master thesis).

The programme, which is coordinated by the Institute for Legal Informatics at Leibniz Universität Hannover, is built upon the idea of transnational academic collaboration and aims to bring important educational benefits to individuals and academic institutions.

What is a Double degree?

A double degree consists of two nationally-recognised diplomas issued by two institutions involved in an integrated study programme. It involves a student studying for two different University degrees in parallel. Typically in a double-degree programme, both of the participating institutions compress the workload required and thus enable students to complete their degrees in less time than it would take to earn them separately. Double degrees must not be confused with double majors, which usually consist of two majors attached to a single degree.
