Students must take one skills course, either in Semester 1 or in Semester 2. Students may choose the language of instruction. Please note that students may obtain a waiver for the skills course upon presentation of the appropriate justifications (transcripts, syllabi and letter of motivation) before course registration to their academic advisor who makes the final decision. As a consequence, students will attempt 4 fewer credits overall during their program. The academic advisor’s decision depends on the number of courses taken in the past and the grades and credits granted for these courses.
Students who have been granted a waiver for the Skills course must take and validate an additional course in the “Special features” curriculum in order to attempt and get 4 additional credits. Students have to make sure, as well, that they attain the minimum of 30 ECTS (validated) per semester.
