Frequently asked questions about the master's degrees offer

Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions about different types of master's degrees.

Around mid January we publish a full list of official master's degrees. Each master's degree has its own website, in which you can learn about the programme's objectives, skills you will acquire, its syllabus and a list of possible career options.
If you have any doubts you can consult the master's degree coordinator.

Full list of official master's degrees

Most of the official master's degrees consist of 60 ECTS credits, which represents a whole academic year (although there are some programmes which consist of 90 or 120 ECTS credits). Each ECTS credit represents 25 hours of dedication (including lecture hours, practical sessions, tutorials, etc.).

If you take 60 credits you can complete your master's degree in one year. However, a "slow track" also exists in which you have the possibility of taking only 30 credits. There is no need to take any special measures in this case. Once you have spoken with the coordinator and made a decision, you can notify the faculty on the day you enrol.

In general, you will need a bachelor's degree to be admitted to an official master's degree. However, you must bear in mind that each master's degree may also have specific requirements. You can consult these requirements at the sections "Admission"/"Admission requirements" of the master's degree you are interested in.

You can pre-enrol in a master's degree even if you have not yet finished your studies, but you must include this information in your online application form.
Once you have been admitted to the master's degree, you will need to prove that you have completed your studies by presenting the corresponding documents on the day that you enrol.
