The Master’s curriculum has a modular structure, which falls outside the traditional term system. Course units are arranged in modular blocks of six weeks each. Each block contains only two course units, 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. You sit exams of the two course units at the end of each modular block, but the blocks also contain interim assessments and (group) assignments. As a result, you no longer sit exams in January or June.
In the second term you will take a practical course unit that ties in 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 dissertation. That Master’s dissertation is a crucial element of your training. It testifies to your ability to apply the acquired knowledge to a problem independently.
If you want to combine your Master’s degree with a Teacher’s degree, then there is the option of taking a Master's Programme in Teaching (in Dutch: '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 or with the University Clermont Auvergne. 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.
