3 Overview Definition(s) Overview & Numbers Challenges Future Trends

4 Dual-Degree Programs Are Gathering Steam New York Times, March 2011 Collaborative International Degrees Are on the Rise Chronicle of Higher Education, Sept 2011 A future trend will be towards the establishment of institutional partnerships and joint-degree programs that will attract students and researchers alike to the combined strengths of multiple universities working in partnership. The Observatory on Borderless Higher Education: Borderless 2011: Perspectives on the Future

5 Definition A review of the literature, university web pages, survey reports and research articles shows a plethora of terms used to describe international collaborative programs, such as double and joint degrees. These terms include: double, multiple, tri-national, joint, integrated, collaborative, international, consecutive, concurrent, co-tutelle, overlapping, conjoint, parallel, simultaneous, and common degrees. They mean different things to different people within and across countries, thereby, causing mass confusion about the real meaning and use of these terms. Knight, Jane (2011). Doubts and Dilemmas with Double Degree Programs. In: Globalisation and Internationalisation of Higher Education [online monograph]. Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento (RUSC). Vol. 8, No 2, pp UOC.

6 (one) Definition International joint or double degree programs are study programs collaboratively offered by two (or more) HEIs located in different countries. They typically feature a jointly developed/integrated curriculum and agreed upon credit recognition. Students typically study at the two (or more) partnering HEIs (i.e., 1 home institution + 1 institution abroad). Joint Degree Programs: Upon completion of the study program students are awarded a single degree certificate issued and signed jointly by all institutions involved in the program. Double Degree Programs: Upon completion of the study program students receive degree certificates issued separately by each of the institutions involved in the program.

7 Definition Some features of JDs or DDs: jointly developed / approved programs joint admission / agreed upon admission requirements agreement on examination procedures / boards substantial study periods at partner institution(s) agreement on credit recognition & transfer staff mobility agreement on fee structures awards: a degree awarded jointly or degrees of each partner institution

8 Overview & Numbers JDs/DDs a European phenomenon first, now a growing trend in higher education worldwide First surveys by Institute for International Education and Freie Universität Berlin in 2008 & 2011 Other surveys: EUA Trends 2010, Japan International Cooperation Agency, Council of Graduate Schools (US/Canada), IAU International Association of Universities

9 Overview & Numbers Institute of International Education & Freie Universität Berlin: First international survey on joint and double degree programs (followup to a previous EU funded transatlantic survey) Online survey early 2011, call for participation distributed to international HE organizations and universities 36 questions on program details, development, motivations, and challenges Responses from 245 universities worldwide (however, mostly US, Europe, Australia)

10 Overview & Numbers How many?

11 Overview & Numbers No global count or accurate total number of existing JDs / DDs Increasing efforts by individual countries & regions to understand landscape via surveys Some estimates: IIE-FUB Survey: > 1300 Germany: > 500, study by German Institute for International Educational Research (2010) European Higher Education Area: > 2500 according to Bologna Stocktaking Working Group (2009) Middle East:? IAU Global Survey Report 2010: 40 HEIs from Middle East, 48% report JDs, 32% report DDs (responding HEIs from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Syria, UAE)

12 Overview & Numbers A relatively new development: Most of the reported joint or double degree programs were established after % 6% 54% 31% Before After 2009

13 Overview & Numbers Joint Degree Programs: 33% Double Degree Programs: 84% Percentage of Joint or Double Degree Programs by academic Level 5% 14% 28% Undergraduate Graduate (Master) Doctoral (PhD) Other 53%

14 Overview & Numbers Business, Management and Engineering Other Social Sciences Physical & Life Sciences Mathematics & Computer Sciences Law Humanities Health Professions Fine and Applied Arts Engineering Education Communications Business and Management Agriculture 6.9% 9.4% 6.9% 6.5% 7.8% 13.1% 8.6% 26.5% 19.6% 25.3% 16.3% 39.2% 47.3%

15 Overview & Numbers European countries dominate current landscape of JDs & DDs Top Countries English is most widely used as language of instruction, followed by French and German.

16 Overview & Numbers Small elite programs? Average number of students in joint and double degree programs 35% 30% 25% 20% 15% Joint Degrees Double Degrees 10% 5% 0% < > 45

17 Overview & Numbers Institutional approaches to establishing JDs & DDs 16% Top-down approach: programs mainly initiated by institutions leadership 41% Buttom-up: programs are mainly inititated by professors 43% All levels are actively involved How institutions chose their joint or double degree partner institutions Other 5.7% Known contacts among faculty/existing faculty partnerships 53.9% Reactive - approached by institution from abroad 23.7% Strategic decision to pick new partner 43.7% Existing exchange partner 61.6%

18 Overview & Numbers Institutional motivations for launching JDs and DDs Rank Motivation Rating 1 Broadening educational offerings Strengthening research collaboration Advancing internationalization Raising international visibility/prestige Increasing foreign student enrollment Responding to increased competition Responding to student demand Responding to particular demand Offering courses from partner institutions Increasing revenue 1.61

19 Challenges Challenges to setting up joint or double degree programs Rank Challenge Rating 1 Ensuring sustainability Securing adequate funding Curriculum design Legal issues Recruiting students Securing support from national or international organizations/gov t Accreditation Academic calendar differences Institutional support Credit transfer agreement Communicating with partner Fee structure agreement Language issues Degree duration agreement Double counting of credits issue Negotiating MOU % report cancellation or discontinuation of a JD or DD program

20 Challenges: Sustainability Funding Students Faculty Structure Generally, sustainability is a priority item in JPs which is obviously disastrously underestimated or even ignored. JOIMAN Network : Good Practice Report for the Management and Administration of Joint Programmes, 2010

21 Challenges: Lack of strategy 91% survey respondents say JDs & DDs are part of their institution s internationalization efforts & strategy but only 55% have a clear institutional policy on program development 59% have implemented additional structures to handle the administration of JDs / DDs 66% report clear policy on the matter of double counting of credits (in case of DDs)

22 Challenges: Student recruitment Student recruitment foci 27% 25% 16% 32% Focus mainly on local students Focus mainly on students in my country Focus mainly on All of the above international students 55% of all respondents say they have no particular recruitment measures in place to recruit students to JDs or DDs Example: U.S. Recruitment Tactics 63 % of U.S. respondents said their institution has not developed any specific measures to recruit students for joint or double degree programs. However, 65 % of U.S. respondents reported that they were focusing recruitment tactics on international students.

23 Challenges: Accreditation Joint programmes are programmes offered jointly by different higher education institutions irrespective of the degree (joint, multiple and double) awarded. Joint programmes could be subject to accreditation procedures by different accreditation organisations in each of the states where the joint programme is offered. These distinct accreditation jurisdictions imply the potential involvement of several accreditation organisations and therefore the execution of different accreditation procedures. European Consortium for Accreditation: Principles for Accreditation Procedures Regarding Joint Programmes, 2007

24 Challenges: Accreditation Double Degree Other Not accredited Part A of the program is accredited in country A, part B in country B Accredited by more than one accreditation authority All parts of the program are accredited in each country Joint Degree Other Not accredited Part A of the program is accredited in country A, part B in country B Accredited by more than one accreditation authority All parts of the program are accredited in each country

25 Future trends: Same, same? Future developments: 95% or respondents plan new JDs or DDs Academic fields: Business & Management, Engineering, Social Sciences Academic level: Master s (76,7%), BA (44,5%), PhD (39,2%) Future Plans: Joint vs Double 51% 5% 5% 40% Only joint degree programs Only double degree programs Both

26 Future trends: Regional diversity United Kingdom France Turkey Russia Brazil South Korea Canada Italy China Mexico Chile Germany Japan Netherlands India United States SIngapore Spain Australia Argentina
