The interfaculty nature of the Master means that a significant part of the programme includes courses organized by different partner faculties.
The programme is structured as follows :
- students from different backgrounds will follow introductory courses which will enable them to acquire a foundation in disciplines they have not studies before. Students must take all these activities to qualify for the Master degree : exemptions may be given for subjects already studied and previous results. If more than 21 credits are lacking, students will have to complete a preparatory year before they can enter the Master programme.
- a block of compulsory group activities : 7 credits
- a professional focus including 30 credits for compulsory activities
- an option or a block of optional subjects : the option programme must include a minimum of 15 credits and a maximum of 30. It is possible to select a mixed programme of activities. However, it is compulsory to take at least 15 credits for activities within a single option if this option is to be mentioned in the supplement to the degree certificate. Failing this, there will be no specific reference to a particular option : the supplement will merely list the optional subjects taken.
- a professional work placement, ideally done outside the university: 30 credits
- a final piece of individual work (report on the professional work placement) : 15 credits
- optional activities enabling students to supplement their programme, depending on any exemptions they may have been granted.
