IV.1.2. Creating a system of double doctoral diplomas in the disciplines of computer science and mathematics – info

IDUB Programme Objective(s)

  • IV. Preparation and implementation of comprehensive solutions for the professional development of university employees
  • III. Improving the quality of education of students and doctoral candidates

Name of POB/activity group



The objective is to create a programme for obtaining double doctoral diplomas in the fields of mathematics and computer science, in cooperation with the world’s leading universities. The activity will be implemented in cooperation with such universities as the members of the 4EU+ Alliance, the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London (UK), the University of Paris (France) or University of Maryland (USA).


The possibility of obtaining a double degree increases the attractiveness of doctoral studies at the University of Warsaw. The basis for the implementation of this activity, apart from agreements with partner units on granting double diplomas, are 1-2 semester internships at top universities abroad. These internships open new prospects in terms of expanding research topics, publishing results, and creating one’s first research team. This is a pilot programme and the experience gained will be used in other disciplines and doctoral schools.


  • Organising 15 semester-long doctoral internships per year, at renowned universities. For the duration of the internship, a student’s scholarship will be increased by a mobility allowance. Funding will be granted through a competition. The doctoral student will be supervised in the host unit by a foreign supervisor or co-supervisor of the doctorate. We anticipate that scientific research conducted during this period will result in joint publications.
  • Making agreements with partner units for double doctoral degrees.
