Structure of the education

Each academic year consists of two semesters which are 20 weeks each, and each semester is further divided into two study periods.

Typically most of the mandatory courses are taught in the first year of the programme. The last semester of the second year is dedicated to the master degree project (30 credits). The first semester of the second year may be used for academic and or cross-organizational (industry, healthcare sector) mobility.


The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list

Grading system

Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.
