Program Outline

Course structure

The course consists of compulsory and advanced modules, complemented by a master's thesis and internship, for a total of 120 ECTS credits.

Students within the double degree program have to study at two institutions of the consortium. As such, they are jointly monitored by two lecturers (tutors), one from each institution. Each student has to develop a study plan with her/his tutors. This plan must be submitted for approval to the Joint Committee of the Consortium. The students have to complete successfully all the written and/or oral exams of the modules selected in the aforementioned study plan. The thesis is supervised by at least two supervisors, one from each host institution. The thesis is submitted at and should satisfy the regulations of both hosting institutions, and is assessed at both institutions.
