Double degree

The procedure you must follow to obtain the spot is the general procedure to obtain a spot of our universities offer: Procedure to obtain a place in universities. However, once you have achieved the place, there is an additional issue you must consider in the organisation of your study plan and the documents to submit to the UPC, depending on your destination:

In a destination with Erasmus grant (divide into different stays, to have grant)

Since you will be going for studies, you will find the information on the requirements to have an Erasmus grant at Erasmus stays for studies: A minimum credits you must enrol at UPC, corresponding to activities performed at the host university; a maximum duration of the semestral Erasmus stays and a maximum amount of days of Erasmus you can add up among different stays.

You will need to divide your mobility into different stays in order to meet these requirements.

Organize your study plan and enrolment, considering which stays will be Erasmus and which stays will not.

Considering the semestral enrolment requirements for the Erasmus grants, you here you have different division of stays, depending if you go to ISAE-SUPAERO or other European universities with Erasmus grant possibility:

 

PlaceHow to divide the stays and the enrolments

KTH
PM
IMT Atlantique

  • First year. Divide the ETSETB enrolment of the lacking elective credits (normally 30) in two semestral stays, so that one of the semesters you enrol the minimum credits required for the Erasmus stay. If you don't enrol credits at the non Erasmus stay,  you will have to pay the enrolment fees.
  • Second year. Divide the ETSETB enrolment in the same way as in the first year, but enrolling your master thesis instead of elective credits, in your Erasmus stay.
ISAE SUPAERO
First year (options for Erasmus grant)
  • Option 1: An annual Erasmus grant. You will have to enrol more than 30 elective credits at ETSETB within the year (the UPC regulations allow you to enrol for more optional credits than the number set out in the curriculum: 12 ECTS for MET and MEE). You will have to divide the credits in order to achieve the minimum credits required for each Erasmus semester.
  • Option 2: An Erasmus studies grant for the first semester (enrolling 30 ECTS) and an Erasmus traineeship for the second (if you find a traineeship at ISAE and meet the requirement of maximum hours allowed). They would be extra-curricular traineeship. You would not pay credits at ETSETB, but you would pay enrolment fees. The grant for Erasmus extracurricular traineship is of 90 days maximum. .
Second year (without grant)
  • The double degree agreement with this university establishes that the second year you will be considered regular students, and will pay the enrolment at the host university, as well as at UPC; therefore, this second year, you will not be entitled to have an Erasmus grant. You will have an annual non Erasmus studies.

State at the precommitment the division of stays you will make.

You will indicate this organization at the precommitment of courses, a document that, together with the learning agreement, shows your study plan. The model and instructions to fill them in are at Erasmus stays for studies.

 

Submit the documents for each of the stays:

  • Precommitment of courses (internal document). See Erasmus stays of studies. You only need to submit it once, before the first stay, with the information for the whole double degree, and you only need to do it again if there are changes in the study plan.
  • Erasmus studies Learning agreement (official document to sign by the two universities and you). See Erasmus stays of studies. Submit one per year. At the place where you must state the period, write the whole year, but indicate in brackets: "the Erasmus stay will take from --- to ---". IMPORTANT: remember that, if you make any change, we will need the modification of the learning agreement, totally signed, at latest one month before the end of the affected semester.
  • Oncampus insurance. One per year (before the first stay of every year). See Documents before leaving.
  • Certificate of arrival: One for every semestral stay. Some of them will be Erasmus model and some will not. See documents during the mobility.
  • Certificate of attendance: See Documents before returning. One for every semestral stay. Some of them will be Erasmus model and some will not.
  • Transcript of records from the host university. We need it original or with a digital signature (scanned signatures or stamp is not accepted). We can receive it at the end of the first year, after you have finished all the courses.
  • Documents of the final thesis. In the second year, within the deadlines of the final thesis established by ETSETB. See Final thesis in Mobility.

 

At Illinois Institute of Technology - IIT (USA)

If you study the double degree at IIT, the double degree agreement we have establishes that the elective credits are not enrolled at the beginning of the stay, which is an exception from the rest of the stays.

You will have one annual stay

You will enrol in the following way

  •  In the first semester, you will enrol and pay at IIT all the credits performed. However, you won't do any enrolment at UPC; instead, you will recognise the credits at the end, paying for them the price for recognised credits, that you can see at the table of "enrolment prices" at Prices and Grants (Masters), which is lower.
  • In the second semester, you will enrol and pay both at IIT and UPC the master's thesis. The enrolment at UPC must be made at the beginning of the semester, within the enrolment period of the ETSETB.
Procedure for courses. You can see the procedure for courses at Courses. The only exception in the case of IIT is that they are not enrolled at UPC at the beginning of the course, but recognised at the end, at the recognition price. Nevertheless, the precommitment and the learning agreement will be made, so that we know the study plan from the beginning.
Procedure for final thesis (enrolment, performance and assessment) is to be found at: final thesis in mobility.
Submit at UPC all the documents detailed at: documents before leaving, documents during the stay and documents before returning, considering your stay is a non Erasmus stay for studies.

 

 

At HEC (France). Private university (without Erasmus grant)

If you study the double degree at HEC, since there is no right to Erasmus grant, you don't need to divide the mobility into semestral stays, but in annual stays. Nevertheless, you must enrol at ETSETB every semester. So:

You will have several annual stays. So many as years of mobility.

You will enrol in the following way:

  • At HEC, you will enrol and pay all the courses you perform.
  • At UPC, you will enrol and pay the elective credits remaining to finish your study plan (normally 30 electives and the final thesis), that will have a correspondence with courses made at HEC. They will be divided into all the semesters of the mobility and this division will be reflected at the precommitment of courses and the learning agreement for studies.
  • If you do not enrol credits in some of the semesters, you will have to enrol anyway in the enrolment period and pay the enrolment fees (and the mandatory insurance once a year).
Procedure for courses. You can see the procedure for courses at Courses.
Procedure for final thesis (enrolment, performance and assessment) is to be found at: final thesis in mobility.
Submit at UPC once every year all the documents detailed at: documents before leaving, documents during the stay and documents before returning, considering your stay is a non Erasmus stay for studies.
