  • 10 credits for a history introduction module, 50 credits for history modules, 30 credits for academic profiling, and 30 credits for the master’s thesis.
  • In principle, English is the language of instruction and will be accepted at all partner universities for presentations, assignments, and the master's thesis.
  • But please consider that the majority of courses at each partner university will be still taught in the respective country's language (for example German at HU).
  • The partner universities offer modules in English for at least 30 ECTS credits as a core programme per semester, complemented by courses or modules in other languages (e.g. the language of the host university).
  • It is not compulsory to complete the programme within four semesters of study
  • Please note: 50 ECTS must be taken in English speaking courses, including the Master thesis, excluding the exchange semester.
