Structure of Studies

Your studies will be centered around the Masters Degree Project which you will complete over the two-year study period. The programme leads to the award of a Masters degree.

Programme enrolment

You can apply to only one of the four partner institutions. If your application is successful you will be enrolled in the same institution where you submitted your application. This institution will remain your home institution for the whole duration of your studies. Upon successful completion of your studies you will receive your degree certificate and diploma supplement from your home institution only, but you will also receive a certificate stating that you have completed a joint programme, signed by the heads of the four partner institutions.

Course enrolment

You will be enrolled on all courses at the institution where you take the course, except for the Masters Degree Project on which you will be enrolled at your home institution.

Please note

All courses are taught in English. Due to the structure of the programme, the timely completion of every semester is very important and you are asked to be involved 100%.


The CoPeCo programme was developed under the auspices of LLP Erasmus Curriculum Development Project (2010 -2013)
