Please note that although attendance requirements will vary with each class, attendance is mandatory in block 1. Since this is a full-time Master’s program, the first block is structured around both classes and workgroups (between 3 to 5 times a week), and so your presence will be essential.

While the academic programme starts on September 1st, on Thursday August 30th we will hold our annual Introduction Day for all of the new master students, followed by a series of academic and social activities on Friday August 31st. We really hope that you can join us during these two days, since it will be a great opportunity to get to know your fellow students, as well as the rest of the university staff here at the University, before your start your academic obligations.
