PROGRAMME STRUCTURE AND COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

You will choose your specialization before starting the programme. The first semester consists of compulsory and elective courses. The second semester is the in-depth phase in which you carry out your final Master’s thesis project.

The academic year is divided into two semesters, each with two blocks of seven weeks of classes. Each block is followed by a week in which only a minimum of classes are planned, leading up to two examination weeks. Throughout the programme, you will work closely in small groups with teaching staff and fellow students in a welcoming atmosphere that is highly conducive to active learning.

You can find more information about the structure of the programme and the course descriptions on the specializations pages.
