This is a very flexible MA programme that allows you maximum scope to construct a degree that suits your special interests. The programme is also offered in a two-year, 120 ECTS credit format, comprising nine taught modules followed by a dissertation. This version of the programme includes the option to study the first year in Canterbury and the second year at Brussels.
