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. Additionally, you will receive a certificate signed by the heads of the four institutions in the consortium.

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. In order to be awarded the final Masters degree you will need to complete 120 ECTS. To continue to the next semester, you are expected to pass 100% of the courses specified in the curriculum by the end of the previous semester. Courses take place at each institution during one semester only, and you are strongly encouraged to pass all your courses within that semester.

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