The programme promotes mobility by simplifying to the maximum the management of the timing of activities. The periods for possible mobility (Erasmus-Socrates and Mercator exchanges, placements in companies, internal placements) are best concentrated in the second semester of the first year. The dissertation and additional training are therefore concentrated in the second year.
However, in the research focus with external mobility and also in the professional focus, there is an alternative : mobility can take place in the fourth semester, by moving the dissertation and the additional training to the second and third semesters.
Advanced courses are given by many visiting lecturers from different foreign institutions and some Belgian ones. These are mostly in English.
