Partake in a survey on transatlantic joint and double degree programmes

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) and the European Union Commission, the Institute of International Education and the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, in cooperation with the State University of New York, the Franco-German University and the Latvian Rectors' Council, are conducting a special survey on transatlantic joint and dual/double degree programmes.
 
The overall goal of the survey is to assess the current landscape of transatlantic degree programmes, identify inherent challenges and opportunities of expanding existing or developing new programmes, and to solicit best practices. So far, there is only limited information available on the number and types of transatlantic programmes, the higher education institutions involved in developing them, and the disciplines in which such programmes have been established. This survey aims to fill that gap and create an inventory of existing models and examples of transatlantic curriculum cooperation. A summary of the results will serve as the basis for a special International Degree Programmes Manual.

The survey is available at:

Filling in the questionnaire should take no more than 20 minutes once you have gathered the relevant data.
