One study programme – two countries – two degrees
FGU students pursue a joint programme of study in France and Germany.
However, they come from countries all around the world.
Key facts at a glance

- The FGU study guide (in French or German) provides you with detailed information on each degree programme.
- A French and a German university together offer a joint programme.
- Each of the FGU programmes is divided more or less equally between the two partner universities, which means that you study abroad for at least a whole year.
- However, thanks to the joint study and examination regulations, this does not extend your study time.
- University entrance qualification
- Good language skills in French and German*
- A bachelor’s degree for master programmes
* Students with a lower level of proficiency (A2-B1) can attend intensive language courses during their studies.
- You submit your application to either the German or the French partner university. In Germany, students apply directly to the university. In France, applications are made via the Parcoursup platform.
- Once the application dossier with CV, certificates and cover letter describing your reasons for applying has been submitted, selection interviews and/or language tests usually follow.
