The master’s programme has a modular structure. That means that you will no longer be taught according to the traditional semester system. From now on, your courses will be bundled in four modular blocks of six weeks each. You only have two courses per block which allows you to process the content in a more focused and in-depth manner. The teaching methods are challenging: case studies, group assignments, discussion panels, lectures, business games, etc. At the end of each modular block you have exams from the two previous courses. During a modular block you also get interim tests and (group) assignments. As a result, you no longer have exams in January or June.
In the second semester you will receive a practical course that fits with your specialisation and in which you become acquainted with the professional field. You will have enough time in the programme to work on your master’s thesis.
Finally, the master’s dissertation is a very important element. Via that dissertation you can show that you are able to apply the acquired knowledge to a problem independently.
If you want to combine a master’s degree with a teacher’s degree, then there is the option of following an ‘Educatieve master’ instead of the above described master. The Master's Programme in Teaching, however is a Dutch taught programme. More information can be found on www.ugent.be/educatievemaster.
It is possible to participate in a double degree programme with the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. In a double degree programme students receive a degree of both the home and the host university. More information can be found on https://www.ugent.be/eb/en/degree-students/double_degree_programmes.
