Bachelor's and Master's degrees

The Bologna Process aims to ensure the comparability of academic programmes and to promote international mobility through the creation of a system based on two Higher Education cycles and the implementation of an accumulation and transfer of credits system, known as the E.C.T.S. system.

Bachelor's and Master's degrees are, originally, Anglo-Saxon and North American degrees. A Bachelor's degree is the first Higher Education qualification one can obtain whilst a Master's degree is the second.

Specialties (Majors) and options (Minors) are infinite and depend on the development of the programme. There are two types of Master's degrees: a professional Master's degree and a research Master's degree. They are achieved by accumulating credits each year, earned in equivalence to the Teaching Units taken over the course of the training.

These credits are registered throughout the year and are recorded at the end of each year on an annual Transcript of Records.

Credits can be earned for any subject, provided modules have been passed and attendance has been regular. Optional modules enabling students to strengthen their skills, widen their knowledge or learn new skills will allow students to earn additional credits. Extracurricular activities may also lead to extra credits: trips, exchanges, contests, humanitarian action...
