It really depends which university you’re looking at... and which country too! The US is vastly different to the UK and Europe in general. For example, I’m studying medicine in Italy, at the University of Turin. We are able to pursue a joint MD-PhD degree should we want to. There are also opportunities to pursue a MBA should we want to, but that isn’t coming directly from the university...

You do one degree but it's split into multiple modules which are basically like topics. You usually pick around 6 modules a year and tend to do 3 per semester. (semesters are like terms in school. You have one from the summer to Christmas and then one from Christmas to somewhere in May) It can vary from degree to degree because some degrees like for example something in nursing you have to do work placements as part of your degree so the set up may be different but it's usually still similar. Also this can vary from uni to uni and even just within different parts of the uni.

In the US and also regions such as South Africa, there is the option to double major which essentially means that you will graduate with two degrees. I the UK generally you will graduate with one degree. However, as stated in the above answer you can enrol at the same institution for another degree or indeed a Masters Degree or PhD.

Most people do one at a time. This could be a single honours degree such as Physics, or this could be a joint honours degree such as Physical Chemistry which links two (and may I say very worthwhile subjects) of Physics and Inorganic Chemistry. You can however do as many degrees as you like once you have finished one. There are many ways of studying whether full time or part time from universities such as the Open University.

Usually most people would do one at a time. For example: someone does a physics degree then comes back and does geography. You can do a joint honours. Eg: maths and physics I’ve known some older people who have many degrees as some people love to learn.

You can usually only take one at a time. You will be too occupied with a single degree to mange doing a 2nd one simultaneously. However, once you have completed one degree, you can do another. Usually people will do a usually 3 years Bachelors Degree, after which they may choose to do a 1 year Masters degree (Or if they want to change fields, just end up doing another Bachelors).
