Double Degree PhD Program with UdeA

Since May 2022, The University of Groningen and Universidad de Antioquia hold a general double degree PhD agreement, which allows students to set up a co-supervised trajectory in any field and, in term, obtain a diploma from each University based on a single course and thesis.

A double degree PhD can also be combined with UdeA’s MD-PhD program. Students that carry out in this program will hold UdeA’s diploma of Medical Doctor, and a doctoral diploma from each University.

Candidates can find more information in our Sandwich PhD with Latin America section.
