Doubles degrees

In 2010, a EUROCAMPUS driving committee comprised of university heads and political leaders in charge of Higher Education in the member regions was established. The committee met four times to define priority actions to be implemented in order to develop EUROCAMPUS, with a focus on initiating and promoting double-degrees and fostering the mobility of professors and teachers.

Double degrees between the Université Toulouse 1 Capitole (UT1) and l'Université Autonome de Barcelone (UAB)

L'Université Toulouse 1 Capitole (UT1) and l'Université Autonome de Barcelone (UAB) signed an agreement in January 2011 to provide students with a double degree in law, with the collaboration of the Pyrénées-Méditerranée Euroregion. This was also the day of the launch of a Euroregional center of excellence of European legal practices : a round table was organized with French and Catalan legal experts as well as professors and students from both countries.

Students doing a law degree at the Licence level will complete two years of courses in Toulouse and two years in Barcelona. In all, they shall complete 240 ECTS credits, in other words that are accredited all over Europe. Upon completion of the four year program, students shall graduate with two degrees : a Licence in Law from the UAB and a Master 1 in Law from UT1 Capitole. Under the aegis of their partnership agreement, UT1 and UAB have negotiated that students can continue their studies with a Master 2 in International Law and a Doctorate.

In accordance with the agreement, ten students from each university shall participate in the exchange. The first exchange was carried out in 2012-2013. This initiative was part of the Pyrénées Méditerranée Eurocampus program, which brings together most students in the euroregional territory. The purpose of this Eurocampus is to foster mobility of students, teachers and researchers between the Midi-Pyrénées, Languedoc-Roussillon, Catalonia, and the Balearic Islands.

Regarding the Master 2 in European Law, students take six months of classes in each university: six months at the UAB and six months at UT1. This degree trains specialists in European legal cooperation and, in particular, Franco-Spanish cooperation. The program is coordinated by the University Institute of European Studies of the UAB, an inter-disciplinary center dedicated to higher education and research in areas related to the European Union. This masters has already started and this year ten students are taking classes.
