Starting on 1st January 2016, VSU students will get an opportunity to study at the partner university - the University of Texas at Brownsville, USA – at the double degree master’s programme "Physics" within the framework of VSU master’s degree programme "Optics and nanophotonics".
But this is not the only result of the partnership agreement between the two universities. The University of Texas at Brownsville will also admit VSU BSc graduates to its master’s degree programme and postgraduate PhD programme. The University of Texas at Brownsville will also manage to compensate our double degree students for educational expenses thanks to a new scholarship programme – teaching assistantship. This became possible after the merger of two universities into a new one - the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UT RGV).
