What are Double Degree Programs

The Double Degree Program provides the longest stay at an overseas university of any Off-campus Study Program. Formal enrollment at two universities enable you to study under both the APU and host university curriculums. Not only is receiving degrees from two universities a noteworthy achievement, but studying under two educational systems endows students with qualities such as diverse perspectives and critical thinking.
As of AY 2020 APU offers multiple Double Degree Programs.
Students participating in these AY 2021 dispatch programs are now eligible to apply for the JASSO Scholarship (no repayment needed).
