About the Joint (dual) degree agreement, there are two regimes.
The first regime is “mutual enrollment type,” that is, student from both side (NTU or Partner institution) can join the Joint (dual) degree program. After completing the graduation requirement from both law schools, the student will be conferred a mutual credit recognition between NTU and the partner institution. We just built an agreement with UHH on Doctoral Degree under this regime recently. There might be
The second regime is “unilateral enrollment type”, that is, only NTU students will join this Program. From the partner institutions’ standpoint, you can regard the NTU student as an ordinary student. The student will solely complete the graduation requirement the program at the partner institution, and be conferred the degree from the partner institution.
Basically, this regime just provide a preferential admission way for NTU students. For example, the student can choose to enroll in the partner institution after completing one-year study at NTU. After the one year study at NTU, the student will move on and complete the study at the partner institution. After completing the study at the partner institution, the student will then come back to NTU to finish the degree at NTU. In fact, the degrees are separately-awarded. We built up this regime with law schools in Netherlands, USA and UK.
The following table is a comparison chart for the two regimes:
|Mutual Enrollment||Students from NTU or Partner Institutions||There might be mutual credit recognition or joint supervision between NTU and UHH||conferred by NTU and partner institution|
|Unilateral Enrollment||Only NTU students||Same as ordinary student in UHH LLM program|
