COMSATS-Lancaster Dual Degree Program (DDP)

Dual Degree Programs have world-wide recognition though not offered in all countries, but some renown North American and British Universities are offering Double/Dual Degree programs. COMSATS University in Pakistan is a prestigious university and is affiliated with Government of Pakistan. COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) puts its prominent efforts in developing international linkages in context of courses and research and development in order to follow the direction guided by Government of Pakistan to make this university one competing internationally.

In the same vain, COMSATS offered its Dual Degree Program in collaboration with Lancaster University, UK for undergraduate students. It has helped bringing international education and standards to Pakistan. Students are awarded with two degrees, one is local and the other one from international partners.

I work with many 'highly skilled' migrants. Doctors in fact. And I can assure you that the requirement for an English language test is entirely necessary. I think you'll find you have to sit the IELTS test if applying to work in the UK or US as well.
