Grants for Double Degree Programmes

The aim of the programme is to internationalise and renew higher education at Swedish higher education institutions primarily on Bachelor and Master's level, but also on PhD level. Grants for Double Degree Programmes targets the development of new educational collaborations between Swedish and foreign higher education institutions.
