INTERMATHS DOUBLE DEGREES
Double MSc Degree Programmes in
Our specialisations include modern applications in material science or socio-economical sciences, as well as innovative methodologies in high performance computing and data analysis.
Double MSc Degrees in Applied Maths Awarded by the InterMaths Consortium
In the second year of the InterMaths Double Degree programme students will be working on their Master thesis, co-tutored by two researchers, one for each of the two institutions involved in their degree programme. The thesis will be written in English. The thesis defense will take place according to the teaching regulations of both the academic institutions involved.
The thesis defence will take place only once with a board of examiners including at least one professor/researcher for each of the two institutions awarding the master's degree title. It will be run starting from June (and no later than September!) of the second academic year but the student will have to have completed all their exams first!
Upon successfully completing all the activities of the InterMaths programme including successful defence of their thesis, students will be awarded a double degree issued by the two universities where the student has completed one academic year (having earned 60 credits minimum in each year).

Credit Transfer Policy
The InterMaths students are required to earn 120 ETCS credits (30 per semester, i.e. 60 per year) to graduate.
Student's performance is documented through the national grading system in force at each partner institution. The transfer and recognition of grades from one institution to another follows the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) and is based on the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area.
Below you can view a chart showing the different grading scales in use at each partner institution and the corresponding grades (A, B, C...) and GPA.
