The duration of the Master’s programme is two years and consists of courses and thesis work. Should you choose a short thesis (30 ECTS), the first three semesters are assigned course work and the last semester is assigned thesis work.
Choosing a longer thesis (60 ECTS), is a more flexible solution to the execution of the programme. It is recommended that you take three courses during the first semester. In the second semester you can work on your Master’s thesis while taking one course consisting of 20 ECTS, and in the third semester you can take one course consisting of 10 ECTS while working on your thesis. The fourth semester is entirely assigned to thesis work.
