What is a Professional Master Course?
A Professional Master Course is an professional advanced course that students and experts can choose to attend after their Bachelors or Masters Degrees.
There are two types of Professional Master Courses:
- First-level Professional Master Courses are open to anyone with a Bachelors degree.
- Second-level Professional Master Courses require a Masters degree (or equivalent, obtained after 5 years of study).
Professional Master Courses normally last at least one year and have different start dates. Admission is restricted to a limited number of students to ensure personal supervision by professors and tutors. Selection is conducted through interviews and/or other forms of evaluation.
The instructions for the selection procedures will be in the Calls and in the Master Course's webpage.
At the end of the course students will get a Professional Master Course Diploma (first or second level).
At the end of the course, participants receive a certification/diploma. To obtain the diploma, students must earn at least 60 credits, in addition to the credits already obtained for a Bachelors degree (180 credits) or a Specialist/Masters degree (300 credits). Master Course objectives and programmes are set by the department or faculty providing the course. Master Courses can also be organised in collaboration with public or private institutions.
The programme consists of lectures, individual study, tutorials, laboratory work, and conclude, as a rule, with an internship in a relevant institution or company. There may be periodic assessments to verify student progress, in addition to a final exam at the end of each course. Attendance is mandatory, and students must not be simultaneously enrolled in any other university course (undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, or other master courses).
