It is aimed at preparing students for careers in EU, national and local institutions, professional associations, the corporate world and private practice.

The programme covers one academic year and is divided into two phases.

  • The first phase includes teaching activities over two semesters (October to January, and February to June).
  • Exams take place in the months of January and June.
