A master's programme lasts 2 years (120 credits) and leads to a degree of Master of Science (MSc). Some master's programmes are thematic which means that you specialize in a particular field. Others contain more choice and make it possible for yourself to steer the focus of the programme.
To be eligible for a master's programme you must have a bachelor's degree.
